Ascent Trip ReportTook Westside Road from Badwater Road and just followed it across the valley floor until reaching the other side and then heading south. The road finally hits some small green shrub vegetation, which is always cool to see in Death Valley.
I followed the peak location in the app, which turned out to be very accurate. I wasn't sure if I would actually be able to find the benchmark, but it was not difficult. It is on the west side of the road, about 10-12 feet off of the side of the road, mounted on a short cement block. Clear of vegetation. Pretty cool. Took a few pics and then headed back the way I came. Saw one other car on Westside Road.
