Ascent Trip Report

From the paved Mine Road, Laura, Keith and I quickly crossed to the other side and ducked under the cattle fence, then went cross country up to the dirt road located just north of Pulse Canyon, the last several hundred feet of which was through thick brush. Someone was target shooting along the normal ascent route that goes up the South Pocket dirt road, so we were all glad to be on this alternate road. Our group hiked up the road, passing a dilapidated and unoccupied house along the way and also missing the road to the two Boardman peaks. We continued up the road to Mocho Saddle and then up to Mount Mocho. Afterwards, we hiked back toward the road that we missed, climbing Mocho Peak North along the way. Once at the road junction, Keith noticed an occupied house located just below our intended route, so we headed back towards Mocho Saddle, checking out several places along the way hoping to find a path that bypassed the occupied house, but the brush was too thick. We continued to Mocho Saddle, then headed down the road and up to the top of Mount Boardman and then Boardman North. On the return trip we tiptoed along the shortcut road located above the occupied house to get back to the road that we walked in on, and did hear some voices and a car door closing. Trip stats are for all four peaks, and none of the summits had registers.
