Ascent Trip Report

This was a nice quick hike/scramble only about 35 minutes out of Henderson. From the Redstone picnic area, I followed an interpretive trail briefly south before branching off towards the southeast to gain the pass between peak 950m and Redstone Peak. From there I made my way southeast again to the pass between peak 1062m and Redstone Peak. For that stretch one needed to careful of loose rock - the kind that comes off in your hands when you try to grab a hold. From the latter pass, there is a faint trail and it is a pretty easy class 2 walk to the summit.
