Ascent Trip ReportLed by Daryn Dodge and Kathy Rich, with Richard Carey and Wasim Khan.
RC brought surveying equipment to settle which of the two summits was higher, this or Saddle Hills East. We all went to the saddle. Then Daryn, Richard & I climbed Ibex BM while Kathy and Wasim climbed the east peak. RC set up his tripod and level while K&W held up and adjusted the sticks, which was marked off in feet and 1/10s of a foot, not inches. It was clearly determined that Ibex was 5 feet higher. We all went down to the saddle then Daryn & I climbed SHE, while K & W bagged Ibex. On both ascents the terrain was pretty steep and loose.
In the afternoon we all joined the DPS Chili Cookoff along the Furnace Creek Wash Rd (very good gravel) about 1.8 miles West of 127.
