Ascent Trip Report

Started the hike at the Hieroglyph Canyon parking lost. It was a great hike with my son Andrew but the trail is not well marked so you really have to watch out for the rock cairn markers particularly on the last two-thirds of the hike. The trail is mostly a rock scramble with lots of scree in places so you really have to be careful of your footing. Actually met another pair of hikers at the saddle that intersects with the Siphon Draw trail. All in all we had a great day.
