Ascent Trip ReportParked near the second wash-crossing bridge after turning right at Mortero Wash/Dos Cabeza. Started up the wash and along an old road. Partway, headed cross country to some petroglyphs and climbed Indian Hill. After Indian Hill headed mostly direct to Moan BM along a gully to the right. Got one cholla ball in the back of the calf...just jumped out ;) Best approach is to from the north and west side of the multiple false summits (big rocks). Took pictures of the benchmark (and two reference marks); signed the register. It was windy at the top as we could see a dust storm heading from the east. We then headed to Windy BM. The best direct route would have been to the NW as our route took several rock shelves and steep gullies (with lots of Cholla). We picked up an old abandoned road with lots of railroad era camp ruins. See Windy BM report.
Total stats for all three peaks: 7.4 miles, 1869' gain.
Time up included a long stop to get photos of the Petroglyphs and exploring of other rock formations along the way.
