Ascent Trip Report

Was going to do this one on Sunday evening, but traffic and fatigue from driving in from Reno area that night on no sleep squashed that idea as I did not want to ascend this one in the dark at all. So we left first thing in the morning and drove up the road as far as I dare in my 2wd truck. We made a nice loop following the road that went to the southwest on the way in, then came out on the one that heads to the east in front of the peak on the way out. I would recommend taking the latter one both for the in and out as there was a lot less scrambling to get the summit, plus less bushwhacking as well. Fun peak with beautiful views of the border and the surrounding area
