Ascent Trip Report

From the Death Valley road, Kathy and I drove about 9.5 miles in on the Waucoba Spring road, then turned right (west) onto Forest Road 36E406 and drove another 2.1 miles, then parked. Forest Road 36E406 is not marked until you've driven in about 0.25 miles; also, it definitely requires a high clearance 4x vehicle to drive. From our parking spot, we walked up the road, which we could have driven another 1/4 mile on, to its end, then went up Squaw's north ridge to the summit. This route is less steep and maybe shorter then a route up the east slope from Waucoba Spring road.
