Joseph and I treked across the desert from FIRST CREEK PARKING AREA.
Went to the south/east ridge and started our climb. It was 3rd class all the way with a few work arounds.Well cairned trail now.
The wind on top was really blowing,had to hang on several times to keep from going flying.
Next time we will go to SMR and park.
