Ascent Trip Report

A short hike before sunset. Slower going than I expected due to the volcanic rocky terrain. The "peak" marked on the topo map was clearly not the highest point. It looked like the highest ground was around the south side of the mesa. Didn't have time to investigate as I barely made it back to the car before sunset. Nice views of the Magdalenas and Quebradas across the Rio Grande.
