Ascent Trip ReportThis was the first peak we bagged on our Rayado trek. We started off with the biggest! We camped at the Clayton Corral, and bushwhacked to the top. We did not locate a fence on the way up and we found ourselves climbing very steep parts early in the climb. Once we got above treeline the climb was straightforward. Then false summits!!!! On the way down we found a fence and followed that as well as we could. It then spit us out into a meadow and then on to the road about a half a mile north of the Corral. We were able to follow the road back. For the inexperienced navigating could be difficult.
