Ascent Trip ReportSince there was plenty of daylight left and we were not tired after the easy trail hike up Ajo, we drove north from the visitor center to the end of the open section of the road where there is a pit toilet. We headed up Pinkley Peak, straight up the west ridge, which had a few easy Class 3 moves. The summit register was nearly empty and we were the first ascent in a year and a half. The sun set just as we arrived back at our car and we headed for the Campground to cook our Thanksgiving Feast! Happy Thanksgiving DPS style – a can of Bush’s Beans and a few bratwursts!!
Off to Mexico in the morning!
