Ascent Trip Report

Took 93 south past 15 miles from Hoover dam. We used interstate 11 and by pass boulder city. Turned left to Temple bar road continued for another 10.6 miles and turned left to a primitive road until we reached the trailhead. The information board was moved closer to the main road. There is a jeep trail visible all the way to the base of the mountain but it is fenced off and is not accessible. We had to follow the jeep trail for about 30 to 1 hour. Started at 5:24 am to beat the heat. Followed the wash afterwards and went through several portions of scrambles. Pretty sunny with some cool breeze at the peak. Going down was fine until I had an accident, boulder rolled unto my left knee and leg going down. Pain was excruciating when I bear weight on it. Our estimated time to reach the jeep was 11:30, we ran out of water. we still have about 30mins-1 hour to the jeep. Had Kyle go ahead so he could hydrate and if I were too slow he could bring me some water. we got there about 1:30 If i am correct.
