Ascent Trip ReportWe started about 1 mile northwest of the HPS parking place for Backus Peak because we only has one car. After doing the ridge traverse from Backus Peak to Russell Peak, we followed the normal decent route for about 1 1/2 miles, than angled over through open desert back to the car. The hike was about 10.1 miles and 5,000' gain and took 8.5 hours.
