|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Palen Mountains High Point|
| Elevation:||3848 ft / 1172 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHiked the Route "C" option listed at DPS. This is the eastern approach from the Arlington Mine Road. The DPS description is the standard fare of walking up the wash, climb the scree slope to the ridge, and follow the rocky ridge to the summit. Unfortunately this rocky ridge is somewhat technical and we had to drop down to the south to bypass the rocky ridge. Nice hike, great views. If I climb this route again, I would aim directly at the summit from the top of the wash.
