Ascent Trip Report

Southbound on Black Canyon Road, turned left (east) onto dirt road directly across from road that goes to the Hole-In-The-Wall Visitor Center. Drove dirt road all the way to end at horse camp (road bends to north after passing maintenance bldg/area).

From horse camp, cross fence, flats, wash, and then ascended slopes thru several cliff walls to summit. Couple gullies can be shadowed enroute thru first two cliff lines. No formal trail, but previous stock and human travel have helped indicate the way. Getting thru the final top wall could be challanging but by traversing further north easier passages present themselves. Difficulty to the summit need not exceed class 2. Summit is basically a ridgetop which can be hiked either way to higher or lower points.
