Ascent Trip Report

From NM 518 I turned right on FR 161 and shortly thereafter bore left onto a little spur road that parallels the forest road. I parked at a spot where my GPS gave the distance to the hp at slightly under half a mile., hopped the fence and walked across the meadow about 200 yards to the base of the slope. It was a very steep but straightforward bushwhack to the top. The hp is on the sw side of the wooded area on top.
