Ascent Trip Report

fun drive in from S22 / borrego salton seaway. the road is on OSM, but gmaps doesn't have it. i'd recommend 4wd for the drive, but bob burd apparently drove it in his van. there were a handful of tourists who drove their SUVs to the summit "trailhead".

incredible view of the canyons south of the peak. definitely worth the drive.
