Ascent Trip Report

we started along a 4x4 dirt road leading north from the Risue Canyon Road high point. It died out after a few hundred yards, but easy walking prevailed up to the top of Black Mountain (8158'). Regards go to Bill H for offering to buy Pete a dinner for leaving one of his register cans atop Black with all our names preserved for posterity. Calling it a day, John B. accompanied Bill back to camp for some R&R.
