Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

Camped at mouth of canyon described in DPS Guide. Followed wash up about 1.8 miles to large arrow made from rocks and surveyors flagging in trees. Turned onto well ducked use trail here which led us up NNW face of peak (with plenty of ducks); above rock fins but below cliffs. Hiked up to Detached Pinnacle and then, following ducked route, around to its east side and then up into the Class 3 terrain to the summit. Great Class 3 route! Ducked all the way up.
