Ascent Trip Report

I followed Patrick O'Neil's GPS route. I always appreciate those who have gone before.
The Inner Pasture is very pretty and I'm glad I looped around that way on the way in.
Coming down on the path due east took a lot longer than I expected. I didn't realize how much elevation I gained coming up the wash on the way in since it was so gradual. Coming down was only about half the distance though.
