Ascent Trip Report

Road is in good condition. There is one water cut across it, however there is an established detour. With clearance I think 2WD could go all the way to the 4WD parking spot at the wash. If I were to do it again, I might park on the north side of the wash next to the transmission line pole.. As per others' suggestions, the walking into the canyon on the north side is easier. No rock hopping and the ground is solid.

For anyone who happens to read this, the summit register on False Maria has seen better days and should probably be replaced. It's gotten wet and is falling apart.
