Ascent Trip Report

We started early in the morning on Saturday, January 2nd, parking really close to the trailhead. On the way down from the top, we passed hundreds of people going up and down the trail. The road out took several hours to navigate because of all of the cars. The actual climb was fun, and was only class 2 with careful route finding up the final rocks to the summit. Our decent (the route on the north) was easy and went down a sand slope. Laura remembered this from another trip report, and it went really well. We climbed Cerro del Ombugo on the way back to the car.
