Ascent Trip Report

Score, a P2k & DPS peak! Did this one with a DPS group but with a bit of a variation on the normal route due to a minor navigation error. This peak was supposed to be easier than Pahrump Peak but ended up being more difficult. The lower canyon is awesome - plenty of waterfall drops and very narrow. We ended up going up the SE ridge of a false summit that is to the east of Stewart. The summit was not as breezy and cool as Pahrump the day before. There was a summit register entry from April 11, 1981, the day I was born. To top it off, the guy who climbed it that day is the father of another DPS guy I met the night before. Small world... We went down the correct ascent route, the SE Ridge and back to the cars along the highway. Pictures
