Ascent Trip Report

I originally planned to climb Sierra Blanca Peak, but the road (Hwy 532) was closed at Windy Point. I thought I might get there by going over Buck Mountain, but between the extra exertion, the added delay, and the worsening weather, I decided against it and settled on only summitting Buck Mountain.
