Ascent Trip Report

This time, we found the correct turnoff that leads to TH. The road is quite rocky in places and definitely requires a high clearance vehicle. It took 2.5 hours to reach the TH from Vegas.

The hike itself was steep in places and required some minor bushwhacking. Trees on the ridgeline offered some shade and a break from the wind. Overall it was a beautiful day and an enjoyable hike.
