Ascent Trip ReportRacetrack road is uncomfortable (due to washboarding) but otherwise passable to most vehicles.
We parked a little higher than usual because our group had multiple cars and the "usual" spot is barely a turnout, much less has no room for more than 1 vehicle. Our spot also had decent areas to pitch a tent.
By crossing to the north of the main wash, we were able to pick up a pretty good use trail to the bump around 8200' on the ridge.
