Ascent Trip Report

I didn't want to navigate the wash in the dark so I slept in my car about 2.5 mile from the trailhead. I started the hike from here the next day because I didn't feel like waiting for the sun to come up. The DPS route is kind of a drag. Lots of road hiking, and then some side hilling involving ups and downs through washes. On the way back, I hiked over to Horn and then descended from there. That route was much more enjoyable .
