Only Party on Mountain
|Date:||Saturday, February 26, 2022|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||4084 ft / 1244 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI followed the ridgeline up, and on the way back I followed the ridgeline for a while and then descended down to Bender Wash and took it the rest of the way back. I am glad that I went down to the wash, and if I did the hike again I would consider going up that way.
I saw some signs of illegal smuggling in the wash -- blankets and backpacks were strewn about.
This hike was better than I thought that it would be, and I really enjoyed it.
