Ascent Trip ReportKelley and I climbed, in order, Puff Benchmark, Moan Benchmark and Indian Hill. We followed a closed jeep road over to the abandoned San Diego and Arizona Eastern railway tracks, then followed the tracks to the base of Puff Benchmark, then went up the west ridge to summit. From Puff, we retraced our route back along the tracks about 1 mile, then took an old road up from the railway tracks to a flat area southwest of Moan, then circled around and up to the top of the peak. We then made our way over to Indian Hill, following a gentle slope at first, then dropping down through a steep boulder field to easier walking. The route took us 7.5 hours, is 10.2 miles and was about 2,825' of gain. This route was far easier then the route we took last year when we did these 3 peaks. Please see my 04-26-2015 Puff Benchmark trip report for trip stats and GPS track.
