Ascent Trip Report

From NM-12 (South of Datil) I took Green Gap Rd to a T-intersection with S. Pie Town Rd (CR-A56); here I turned left and followed it around towards the mountain. Park on State of New Mexico Trust Land just off Dripping Vat Rd (34.1252, 108.2068) as much of the area is private land. Note: Dripping Vat Rd is called Pipeline Springs Rd on maps but is signed, Dripping Vat Rd.
