Ascent Trip Report

The access road to where I parked was in excellent condition. From where I parked one cannot see the summit area of Lodge Benchmark, one must start in the direction and when climbing up out of the wash then the summit area comes into clear view. There are two smaller summits to the west of the benchmark and while the middle is the next highest it is the most tree covered and offered limited views. The far west summit area did offer views of the rock garden below.
