Ascent Trip Report

The road except for the first 3 miles was in very poor condition, very washed out and eroded with a lot of exposed bedrock in many spots. I barely made it to within 1.5 miles of where you leave the road to climb up the summit hill and almost got stuck twice in a stock 4x4 SUV. I could see the road to deteriorate further during the monsoon season making it only passable for a capable vehicle like FJ Cruiser or Jeep.
I did not find a summit register though there was a rock pile by what I believed to be the highest point.
