Ascent Trip Report

Hiked to the top through a tangle of Mountain Mahogany, Juniper, Pinion and other thorny bushes far too many to name. The path was circuitous but the excellent route finding skills of two of our group-Howard and Tobi, who performed yeoman's work-allowed us to summit in 3 and a half hours. Beautiful views to the north and to the south to our next climb, Notch Peak. Wheeler, Mt. Moriah, Ibipah and Haystack Peaks were visible out to the west.
