Ascent Trip Report

attached driving track is based on paul mcclellan's directions. we came in from AZ-86 and indian route 34 (paved), but if you read eric kassan's report you'll learn that it's possible to connect with indian route 15. the included track is definitely hi-clearance, all terrain tire territory. there are numerous deep ruts from washes, some sandy sections, and desert pin-striping opportunities.

steep hike, with much easily avoided brush and generally solid rock.
