Ascent Trip Report

I drove in 4.6 miles and camped. The road is very rough and this is as far as I thought I should take my Jeep Liberty (35.51381/116.25398). I met Craig Jargow and party at the highway turnoff and he was kind enough to give me some info on the road in and where they had spent the night. They summited on the 9th. A sraight forward hike up the canyon a little route finding to gain the ridge and a very windy up and down to the summit. Great view!! I was back at the car at 4pm and spent the night.
