Ascent Trip Report

First of 2 DPS peaks this day. We made a beeline from the cars to the base of the mountain. Instead of taking the wash indicated in the DPS guide, we cut left (north) on to the ridge. From the western high point, we made our way down into the basin on top of Eagle Mtn and over to the actual summit, which lies to the east. Fantastic views, perfect weather. We headed down slightly south of where we came up on the ridge south of the wash. We then crossed the open desert for a few miles to the cars and onwards to Orocopia. Pictures
