Ascent Trip Report

From NM 518 (near the high point on the road) I took Forest Road 722 2.4 miles (north) to a parking spot next to a steep track running up hill to the right. After about a 1/4 mi. on this track, I bushwhacked on my GPS heading to the top where I found a flat, lightly wooded area.
