Ascent Trip Report

As I approached the parking spot for this one, border patrol was driving the parallel dirt road at 5 mph - ugh.... I pulled over short of the desired parking area and took a leak to avoid looking suspicious until they crested the hill and dropped out of view on the other side. This road doesn't see much traffic so it was much nicer to park here and cross to the gate out of view. I hopped the chest-high gate and proceeded west towards the highest ground. I explored the area thoroughly, feeling that the highest natural ground is just west of the point on peakbagger. After the obligatory summit shots, I wandered back to the car. No issues whatsoever! Onward to BBQ in Del Rio and real peaks in Big Bend! Pics
