Ascent Trip ReportApproached from the east side of the Cargos Muchachos, taking the prominent wash to the north of Stud Mountain (west of the black butte). Climbed a ridge to the left (south) when I saw what appeared to be a couple of cairns, but clearly should have waited longer, as the peak was still a ways off. On the descent, decided to drop down much earlier, and came down the big gully/wash to the ENE of the peak.
