Ascent Trip Report

Parked the car and hiked across the desert plain according to the DPS guide. We took the creek bed to the left of the ridge, which had some nice class 3 but wound around quite a bit, before heading up to the ridge indicated by the DPS. We then continued up to the summit before returning along the ridge, which made difficult walking around the volcanics.
