Ascent Trip Report

This was a combination hike/mine exploration so our route was anything but direct. Along the way we saw some interesting evidence of mining operations from years gone by, highlighted by a very deep shaft on the return trip. The summit views were somewhat restricted by the hazy conditions over the desert but nevertheless a fun hike with great people on a nice day. The remoteness of the area enhanced the overall experience.
