Ascent Trip Report

Bitterly cold on top of ridge, snowstorms blowing over the plateau to the south meant poor visibility. First "snow" ascent of the year!
03/09 - straight up, 35 minutes
03/11 - Up the east ridge, down the abandoned road. Jumped up a coyote, two chukars, and a prairie falcon. The old road adds quite a bit of distance to this walk.
