Ascent Trip Report

Started at Mule Pass and followed the trail and foot track to near the summit of Mount Ballard, where the track became obscured, then reached the small rock cairn and marker at the summit. Then worked my way down to the saddle between Mount Ballard and Fissure Peak and up the SE ridge to the summit of Fissure Peak, with better views than those on Mount Ballard. Tried to stay near the ridge crest on the descent to the saddle and up to the summit, using rock outcrops when available to avoid brush and otherwise weaving through oak and between yucca and cholla. Returned the same route to Mule Pass.
