Ascent Trip Report

Rained most of the day. Unusual for the desert in December... We wanted to take the more adventurous Class 4 route but decided that climbing wet rock would be dangerous. We took the canyon route instead. We got lost and ended up on the wrong ridge, forcing a retreat of a few hundred feet. The canyon is pretty brushy, but easy to follow. Pics
