Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Genser TH and followed the Starr Pass Tr around the hill with mining prospects, which put me in line for a southwestern approach to the peak. Left the trail once at the saddle and bushwacked as direct as the veg and topography would allow, to the base of the first small step. The remainder of the route up was pretty direct along the ridge with occasional lose rock encountered. Coming down the lose rock and buffel grass made for slower progress due to sketchy footing. But once back below the lower step the terrain leveled out and became easier to negotiate. From there I proceeded back to the saddle, jumped back on the trail, and headed around the prospects hill to the TH.
