Ascent Trip Report

Fairly simple and quick hike from the South Ridge near the Hidden Dunes. Great views from the top of the Eureka Valley and Death Valley in general. I know the map says the peak is north of my ending point, however, from where I was standing it appears the two peaks which are composed of sand were equal and I'm not convinced the further one was higher.
