Ascent Trip ReportThis was a typical desert hike, going in washes, around washes, getting sharp things in your legs and socks, and dry waterfalls to go around/over. There was parking available for one, maybe two cars at this spot spot. Bushes will scratch the bottom of your car, but it's not rocks so…
High clearance vehicles could probably find more parking off of the shoulder but if you are desperate, a mile down the road has plenty of car accessible parking right here.
I got off track a view times so I don't recommend following my track exactly. I made it, but probably not in the easiest way. There are a few opportunities to climb class 3+ dry waterfalls and I believe they all had bypasses. I didn't mind climbing up some and I tried the alternate routes on the way back.
The last 0.7 miles to the top is over an average 40% grade with loose sharp rocks. I tried to stay on the exposed large rocks going up for stability and going down the somewhat loose scree on the way down. It wasn't very enjoyable in either direction.
