Ascent Trip Report

From the the north entrance to Grand Canyon National Park, Kelley and I drove east a short distance on a dirt road past the ranger's residence to a locked gate, then parked. From there, we walked up the dirt road all the way to the lookout. Afterwards, we walked back down the road about 0.3 miles, then bushwacked cross country over to the park's high point shown on the map, where we found and signed the summit register, then we bushwacked back to the road and hiked back to the truck.
