Ascent Trip Report

Exited the 5 at Dairy Mart rd turned right. Dairy Mart turns into Monument rd, followed it to the park entrance. Parked in the lot before the gate and walked south to a gravel road. Staying on the gravel we headed up and at the curve we were met by Border Patrol. We told him where we wanted to go. He told us they call this ridge "The Spine" and radioed the watchtower and told us ok but not to go near the towers. We climbed the spine got a photo at the top and headed back the same way. Ran into another Guard who was super nice too and we talked for about 10 mins.
