Ascent Trip Report

On a trip while in high school with two friends. We walked up the forest road into a box canyon, climbed the canyon wall to reach the summit, only to find a jeep trail leading up to it from the other side! We thought for sure we were the first ever. Well, that was high school in 1967. The beginning of my adult love affair with mountains.
