Ascent Trip ReportI drove out from Santa Clara on Old Highway, taking a BLM road to Hell Hole Pass. I was able to make it up from there all the way to the summit in my '91 Ford Ranger; however, this is not a drive I'll take again in that truck. At several turns near the top I was spinning out in low gear on rocks and loose dirt. The road was in poor condition, so perhaps it would be more driveable when graded / maintained. The views from the summit were great. I descended via the west side of the Beaver Dam Mountains, going past Indian Spring before turning south and meeting the Highway.
