Ascent Trip Report

From the main road in Monitor Valley we headed west on BLM road 43348 (if my notes are correct). We followed this to its end in Mill Canyon at about 8120'.

For the hike, see my attached GPS track. The canyon bottom line was our up route (quite brushy in spots). The higher traverse above the canyon bottom was our down route (less brushy, but I suspect it would be hard to follow on the way up).

There is a bit of high class 2 near the top. We started down to the east, but the traverse was so steep and loose that we changed our minds.
