Ascent Trip Report

Dennis was kind enough to repeat this peak with me and this became our second peak of the day after doing Lone Mountain of Nannies peak fame earlier. We drove the road to its end but it was a nervous drive as one rock in particular made me edge my Tacoma very close to a big drop off. Not a bad idea to walk this one if shelf roads and drop offs are not something you enjoy. Nice hike up to the summit and from the summits we saw a lot of wild horses off to the east. Some really great views. Thanks to Dennis for sharing this one with me.
