Ascent Trip Report

I drove out there on Friday evening, June 2nd, and camped at the campsite near the trailhead to do the hike Saturday. The hike is a 14 mile round trip with only 3500 feet of vertical gain. It took me about 3 hours to reach the summit, which overlooks Badwater (-282), the lowest point in North America. On the return trip, I went over Rodger's Peak (9,994), and back to the trailhead. That night I camped down at Wildrose campground, still in the park. The next day I drove to Trona Pinnacles to do some off-roading, and then did some bouldering along Trona road for a few hours.
