Ascent Trip Report

A typical desert peak: lots of prominence, lots of loose rock and scree, and steep, rough terrain. Fantastic views all the way up the ridge, and the best, of course, from the summit. The whole Spring Mountain Range could be seen, as well as Telescope Peak and the High Sierras. A great day on the mountain.
