Ascent Trip Report

gmaps will direct you to the summit, it will tend to want to choose walker road. we forced it to pick senator highway, which seems to be the popular way to get up here, it's only a few minutes longer than walker road. either way: the road is fairly good dirt, with rocks starting occasionally and increasing as you approach the upper gate.

most surprising here were the number of in-holdings in the forest.

snow showers obscured any views.

this would be the final peak of our productive 4-5 day AZ CoHP+P2k-fest.
