Ascent Trip Report

Driving:

Drive on Indian Road 34 to MP 43.3 just east of Hickiwan.
0.0 Turn north on the unmarked Stor Pitka Road (dirt) passing a few buildings.
4.5 Bear Left to leave the sandy wash.
4.8 Pass a corral on your left.
5.6 Merge with a road from your left.
7.1 Turn Right onto Pipeline Road.
7.5 Cross a wash beside the exposed pipeline.
10.0 We parked here just beyond the pass marked BM 2620 on topo map.

Hiking:

Should I return I think I would ascend and descend the WNW Ridge. This is rockier and has more elevation gain/loss than the NNW Ridge, but reaching the WNW ridge avoids crossing several washes that lie between parking and the NNW ridge.
