|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Mexico|
| Elevation:||12835 ft / 3912 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis is a fairly simple hike the only difficulties being the altitude and of course any bad weather that may come up. Very little of the trail is at all steep. The most difficult part being the final approach to the summit which is a bit steep and covered in large rocks. I am very glad that I chose to climb in the fall; the weather was perfect and the fall colors add nice definition to the views. There was no snow, but the first snows came shortly after my trip.
