Ascent Trip ReportWe parked at the trailhead and walked in. That was 4 miles took a break at the railroad then headed south. Came to the end where there were several big boulders and started heading up. The bouldering was easy. Then getting to the top was hard because it was steep. A nice view from the top. A 360 degree view of the desert floor and the windmill farm. The weather was warm with a chilly breeze on top. Stayed for awhile then headed down the northern slope which was steep and rocky and full of Chois bushes be careful of those. Then the walk we saw huge jack rabbits. Walked the ridge line back to the trailhead. The total walk was 12.5 miles but overall a good walk.
