A descent worth the climb Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2007
On account of us taking the wrong ridge to the top, we did have a bushwhack from hell to be sure (stay in the drainage!!). I tore my favorite shirt! The view from the peak was worth it and so was the geocache with Dr. Otto Von Houtenholler! The drainage is quite nice with some short climbs (maybe class 3) but nothing technical. Near the ridge look for the "waterbottle" trail to get to the top. The trek is ~1500-ft of elevation gain in about 1/2mile.
We left the wash too soon and followed the first ridge to the summit. The bush was so thick near the summit that we thought we may need to give up. Stick to the wash, stay to the left in the wash. Watch out for Poison Oak.
