Ascent Trip Report

Hiked to the south summit of Desatoya Peak and descended via the north peak with a cross country scramble back to Basque Summit. Found the county hi point register and a geo-cache site located about 25 yards away. Each of the three bench markers was stamped with the word "TWIN".
Bob Sumner's hiking guide was used for this outing.
Great hike!
