Ascent Trip Report

This was a great, easy hike with some fantastic views. Most of the hike was just fallowing a gentle (and relatively brush-free) wash.

At about 3800' the wash has a cool dryfall (maybe 15 feet tall), but water has eroded easy steps up the center so it was easy class 2, if not class 1. The final bit (when one decides to leave the wash for the ridge) got steep, but it was not that bad.
