Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to do it once without driving basically all the way up. I hiked up from Munch Canyon, dropping into Davy Brown then up the ridge to the road and up the road. Headed down the north ridge and continued up and down it until hitting the road where Willow Springs conveniently starts down. I took it to Davy Brown again, a bit further down, and then down to the camp and returning on Sunset Valley Trail. See the blog post for details and pictures.
