Ascent Trip ReportWe hiked up Palo Verde Canyon from S22 to 1900' in elevation, then climbed west up to the ridge. Next, our group hiked up the ridge, recrossed Palo Verde canyon at 3520' in elevation, then followed another ridge to Rosa Point. From Rosa Point, we followed the ridge northwestward to Mile High, then hiked west down the ridge and then up a slope to the use trail that goes to up Villager Peak. Our group then followed the use trail back to S22. The mileage and elevation totals includes Rosa Point. We saw 6 Bighorn Sheep just below Rosa Point.
