Ascent Trip ReportClimbed with Duncan the day after Flat Top. Probably the toughest climb of any of the desert ultras I've done- Timp, Nebo, Flat Top, Deseret, Wheeler, North Schell, Jefferson, Humphreys, Peale and Telescope. Amazing views, good snow climbing near the top, and excellent weather! The road is passable nearly to the end with two wheel drive, but very rough. We got almost all the way in a Toyota Echo, but I'd rather not do that again. Definitely a classic desert peak, and very rewarding.
