Ascent Trip Report

We used Dennis Poulin's GPS file and trip report that was accuracy and help us a lot. However we didn't descent the same way Dennis did it. We descent the dry canyon, originally we thought that was easier way out but turn out it was longer and strenuous hike. We crossed numerous times up and down the dry canyons/wash. I don't recommend to use our route, use Dennis Poulin's route that easier and shorter route. We had a challenging way to descend and view was nice too. We found a reference maker but not BM at the summit.
