Ascent Trip Report

I followed Caleb Morris' excellent directions on Summitpost.org (http://www.summitpost.org/oregon-canyon-mountains-south-ridge/623299) to reach Little Pinky Reservoir (dry). The Cottonwood Creek crossing was dry but short and steep and required good approach and departure clearances to drive through. If you cannot continue in your vehicle it will add 6+ additional miles round trip to your hike versus starting at Little Pinky Reservoir. Followed Caleb's directions up the south ridge. Followed a 4x4 track on the plateau leading through the mountain mahogany.
