Ascent Trip Report

A very straightforward route, direct out-and-back from the TH. The road was worse than expected. Nothing truly bad, just sustained rocky-ness that kept the speed really low in the Outback.

I had a brief chat at the TH with a pair of older hunters who had been hunting this area for many decades. They encouraged my to visit Monument Rock as well (which I intended to do), but time realities forced me to skip that one this time. There seems to be an abundance of climbable rock in this area, with an especially intriguing tower/fin (7671') that's perhaps 80' tall.
