Ascent Trip Report

We ascended the wash almost directly south of the summit, then found a use trail that traversed to the east and north around the summit and connected to the main trail which we followed all the way to the summit. The GPS track that I uploaded shows the complete trail from where it begins in the wash to the summit. I created this track using Google Earth. Apparently this is a frequently used unmaintained trail. Very visible from Google Earth. Our descent followed the ridgeline to Little Corkscrew Peak and then down a use trail from the saddle.
