Ascent Trip ReportGetting to the area- off old US 66, take the offshoot road towards the Kingman Airport, then turn left on Shipping Lane. Stay on that as it twists left to parallel the railroad tracks. It eventually turns right and changes name into Jan Rd. Stay on that as far as you can. Eventually it ends in a "T". Take the right fork and park where you want. If you take the road to the very end, you'll have an even shorter hike that mine. I recommend high-clearance, but a passenger car could probably make it (most of the road is great but there are a few challenging spots).
The road went higher and closer (in better condition) than we were expecting, so this ended up being a rather short hike. The terrain, while off trail, was usually good. The ridge was the best route as it was mostly clear of brush. There was a bit of optional class 3 climbing towards the top, but it could be walked around. The views from the summit were spectacular.
