Ascent Trip Report

Laura and I generally followed Patrick O'Neill's 03-04-2017 GPX from the end of the road at Cottonwood Wash to the summit of Silver Peak and Granite Mountain and then back to the end of the road at Cottonwood Wash. The route to Silver Peak goes up a sometimes hard to follow dirt road and then the peak's north ridge to the summit. For Granite Mountain, Laura and I dropped down below the ridge on its east side to traversed over to the 1756T (meter) saddle shown on the topo map, which kept the route class 1-2. From there, we followed the standard DPS route up to the summit of Granite Mountain and then back to the end of the road at Cottonwood Wash. Also, trip stats are shown in my Silver Peak trip report.
