Ascent Trip ReportBy this time daylight was growing short, so I decided not to climb the sister peak, and then head down the third class rock on the east side back to my car, as I didn't really know the route well enough to attempt down climbing it in the dark, so I took the long way around by heading back down towards the Calico Basin parking lot and down the Scenic Loop road until I picked up the trail and wash leading towards the east side of the range where my car was parked. It added another four miles to the hike, but it was safer than being caught out in complex terrain in the dark. The last hour was done with a head lamp.
