Ascent Trip ReportCargo Muchacho HP is more difficult than it looks on Google Earth. I took the big drainage that bisects the northern end of the range just above the highpoint with my parking spot less than a mile in off the highway on the west side. I followed the wash/canyon all the way to the top where it makes a saddle (32°53'42.51"N, 114°47'37.73"W), then hung the slight southwest and made my way up to the summit. It is quite jagged and steep past the top of the drainage here, with a lot of narrow footholds. There's a couple dryfalls in the canyon, one of them pretty big.
