Ascent Trip ReportTried driving all the way to the HPS parking spot for Route 1 in a passenger car, but encountered a minor washout about 1/4 mile away. I didn't feel like risking it and had to reverse down the narrow, rocky road. Would have saved much more time to park just beyond the final fork. Went to Cross first then ascended Peak 4964 (Southwalla Peak) via west ridge from canyon. Taking the ridge saved about a mile from heading up the canyon and approaching from the south. Would make a better descent route to those continuing to Cross after tagging Chuckwalla first. Then, continued north to Chuckwalla.
