Ascent Trip Report

From eastbound Highway 18, I turned left onto Joshua Road, then made a quick right onto Yucca Loma Road and drove to the end on the pavement, then continued straight onto a high clearance dirt road and drove 0.5 miles to where the road ends. For the hike, I went up the peak's west ridge to the summit, which was generally class 1 if you weave around the rocks. Also, I did not locate a summit register.
