My friend Jerry who has a winter spot on the Colorado River outide of Yuma invited me on this one. Did it in 2006 again I think. Up the wash, then the scramble up by the thumb. We climbed under the chockstone on the route with a little exposure. At top windy and sunny with beautiful views. Military guys sign in a lot up here. We went a different way down and cliffed out; descended a gully down a dry waterfall chute. Later we went to some mudwalled slots and tried to get to Big Eye mine but ran out of time.
A solo day trip with Honda from Tucson.
Bit of a stretch in both vehicle and 4th class.
Came up DPS wash from NW, then SW face. Placed
ducks to mark route, but lost them for a couple
panicky minutes on descent.
Register on top showed a _lot_ of traffic.
