Ascent Trip Report

From exit 149, I-25, I drove on a parallel road that became N Nevada Ave, US 87. After crossing over I-25 I made a hard left onto N Nevada Ave with a BMW lot now on my right and just before the BMW place on the right there is a dirt road/parking area that one could pull into and go hiking/biking. I chose to continue north on Nevada and passed the Lodges and UHaul before pulling into another parking lot which is the Pulpit Rock TH. I traveled south on that trail walking behind the Lodges and continuing on towards BMW.

I left this north/south trail and took a lesser trail that first tracked east before curling south up to the summit of Pulpit Rock. Maybe one easy class 3 move to get atop the summit block. I then followed a user trail across a saddle and then up to the Pulpit Rock high point.

Good Views and definitely some interesting rock formations including the pulpit. 2 miles rt tops.
