Ascent Trip Report

This is my descent route which worked fairly well and minimizes the boulder scrambling I did on the ascent where I was following the track by John Strauch. The hike starts from the road in Jojoba Wash. From highway S2 drive in about 1.5 miles to a junction and go right for another 1.4 miles to a small pullout. This road is sandy in places so 4WD is advised. The hike goes straight up the slope to a low point then crosses a relatively flat area. Then there is a drop of about 350 ft. to a wash. From there head over to a drainage and some boulders will be found as you get closer to the peak. The last 100 yards or so to the summit is easy.
