Ascent Trip Report

Headed over from red rock and all that. Took the wrong route down from the north and wound up on the far side of a gnarly drainage from the way up he rock. Crossed and started up the easy part on the right. Lots of poison oak here too. At the next section there were two obvious choices and I took the right one, which was wrong. For me at least. Back down and took the left one past a large white-crusted boulder. Still not an easy way up from that side but I worked up a semi chimney part. Stopped halfway to rest and regain composure. And then the top. Found a vey makeshift register in a jerkey bag and left my mark. Took a slightly different round down that might have been easier.
