Ascent Trip Report

while the views are great the climbing isn't: lots of loose gravel. i went up via a faint trail, which i lost along the way and ended up just climbing up/over the obvious ridge line until i reached the saddle before the final climb. on the way down i had no desire to retrace my steps so i did a steep descent down to the dry creek and followed that most of the way back to my car.
