Ascent Trip Report

Our group carpooled from a gas station along the highway where we left the low-slung 2WD cars. I rode to the trailhead with Dan Baxter as I have hiked and carpooled with him before. The ascent is steep in places, but never difficult. It is all off trail. The summit made for the usual lunch spot. On the descent we were able to locate the petroglyphs that are right below the summit. Pictures from Hayford & Stirling
