Ascent Trip ReportClimbed with Lauren and Inyo (dog). From below it looks near vertical, but the ledge system is all easy class 2. The hardest part is trying not to loose your footing on the loose volcanic rock on the slopes between the wash and start of the route. Excellent views in a really neat, and remote region. Found 3 different tortoise shells (plastrons) on the long walk across the flats from the wildness boundary.
