Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I paid the $10.00 entry fee to the Los Coyotes Indian reservation, then drove up to and parked at the Los Coyotes campground. Next, we walked past the locked gate and up the Sukat and Hot Springs dirt roads to just below the old lookout, then followed the use trail to the summit. The actual highpoint is about a 30' high boulder, which is 3rd class and is best climbed from the north. The summit register books were located in a plastic container filled with water and therefore were soaking wet. Trip stats and GPS track include an ascent of Corral Benchmark and Peak 6400.
