Ascent Trip Report

C2 path for the high point of Pins n’ Pokes Hills. Less stabby routes sure do exist. I gladly made the trade off for less snow.
My descent route varies a bit only because I wanted to be below the ridge from the opposite side of where I heard gunshots... I forgot to switch modes from “all black all everything” to avoid being shot by ranchers, and into “Hey world! Look at me all colorful and bright AF mode” to avoid being shot by hunters.
My descent ended up being better with less cacti and no barbed wire fence to deal with.
Easy 4wd roads and clearance needed to reach my starting point.
