Dos Cabezas South Peak from the ridge traverse. A vertical crack splits the left-most third of the face with brush at its base. A few feet further down to the right against the face is a large, lichen-covered rock behind which a ramp leads to a brushy ledge appearing to the right and leading diagonally across the face to a last visible bush on the right. Here a hidden gully leads diagonally up to the left to the summit. We first tried the obvious ramp on the lower right of the peak but it ended in very exposed and difficult rock (2017-03-04).
