Ascent Trip ReportDrove up to Bull Creek Pass from the west, hiked, and drove out the road to the east. Both roads were steep and rocky, but high clearance was not a must on either route. 4WD, on the other hand, is quite important on both roads. In fact, we popped a tire in Kari's Jeep on the way down, so perhaps a new set of tires more suited to off-roading would have been the way to go. The hike was short and every bit as beautiful as I'd expected it would be. Maybe my favorite view of all the desert peaks! Also Kari's first ultra.
