Started from the road north of the peak and spiraled around the west side to the southwest ridge. Great fun! Found a Mike Garrat register from 2009 with only about a dozen entries. Partly couldy, but a beautiful spring day.
From the Northwest...ish Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2013
We parked NNW of the peak on BLM road 1114. Going up the obvious ramp (middle of the current main picture) we cut across the talus field to the Southwest rib and then ascended a gully just off the rib. Pretty straightforward. Watch your descent though. There are some sandy drop-offs around the bottom hundred feet of the peak.
Approached from northwest. Climbed the wall on the west side of the southwest ridge with some loose rock and cacti. Descended the gully on the west side of the northeast ridge. Nice climb/scramble, good weather, gorgeous views.
Date a guess. We (NMMC) started that morning by climbing a volcanic neck south f Cabezon, then went up over Cerro Cochino, over Black Meas. I recall thinking about all the Spanish words for "pig", and how there were at least as many English words for pig.
