Ascent Trip Report

Very warm and extremely dry. The buckthorn cactus, ocotillo cactus, and creosote are lacking characteristic winter color. Dry as a bone. The Santa Rosa Mts to the north have no snow cap and are brown.
Saw a desert bighorn sheep around the 2144' level. Observed one another for 45-60 seconds or so and then she scampered up and away.
