Ascent Trip Report

tagged along with courtney purcell, db, bo beck, tanya milligan, and james from dc. We headed up gifford canyon, climbed up to the saddle or ridge between gifford peak and destination peak and then climbed down to the east west drainage that led us to hepworth wash. From there we ascended slabs and ledges and then traversed over to the north side of G2 before finally to the crux cliffwall just below the summit. There's about 15 feet of low class 5 slickrock ramp to friction up. Views up on top are superb. On the return we headed down and over towards Bridge Mtn and descended that drainage back to Hepworth wash and then Gifford wash and on out to our cars back at the tunnel exit on rt 9.
