Ascent Trip Report

Based on everything I heard about the route from the southwest, I strongly recommend this approach.

Getting to the trailhead isn't easy. A vehicle with high clearance can probably make it to the Boy Scout camp (looked abandoned at the time of this ascent), but good 4WD is needed to get the higher road. Note that the roads have changed from what's on the topo maps (and Google Maps doesn't show any roads above the Boy Scout camp. If you follow the signs to the camp, the road goes through it, then gets very rough until it gets over the hill joining with the road on the topo at 9920'. From there, the road is pretty descent, for anyone who wants to drive further.

On the way up we took a more direct approach which turned out to have much worse terrain (boulder hopping and several major washes to cross)- the return route (slightly further north) was MUCH better.
