Ascent Trip Report

climbed peak for Andrea's birthday. Her fiance Logan, Donnie 3, and I hiked the route described by Adam Helman and Richard Carey. Excellent discription. The only change since 2003 is no concrete sign found. Weather was fabulous, cool in morning and in 80's for the descent. Left truck at 6:20. We were in the shade for the entire climb until the saddle at the top of dark canyon. Great day! Ascent took four hours, total trip time eight hours and twenty minutes.
