Ascent Trip ReportWe took 395 north then the 120 east to forest rd 1S07 at a sharp 90 turn we parked and headed up towards the saddle between the to summits,when the bushes/trees ended it became silt and sand.We hugged the brush/treeline curving north and west until it ran out.We climbed South Crater first. It was all sand to the top but fun dritsurfing down. Back at the saddle we headed toward Crater mtn. it was a little more rocky and had a few bushes we followed the highridge around and went up north/east side.The summit was rocky ground poking out of the sand. We had great views of mono lake and even found some black obsidian.
