Ascent Trip Report

From the saddle coming down from Orizaba, I passed my water tank - ever wary of the buffalo watching me and gave them plenty of space. They were all over the road and I wasn't interested in starting a turf x-country for a bit it was! Re-joined the TCT and headed up a road about a mile to the peak. With 3/4 of a mile, the peak road turned sharply upwards from the TCT - I went around a gate and made a quick trip up the paved road to the top. Again - lots of satelites and antenae at the top.... there was a spot in the chain link fence towards the top of the boulders where someone had obviously entered.... But that wasn't for me - especially with all the radiation warnings. Anyway - tagged the fence and returned to the Black Jack campsite - another 2 mi RT... Total with Orizaba and BJ Peaks made it 6 miles in addition to our 15.6 on the TCT> Nice day!
