Second of two peaks for me over the weekend. Went with John Klein, Adam Helman, Scott Peavy, Scott and Tanya Kelley. The ridge from the saddle to the summit is exposed and intimidating, but there's always a way through, if you don't mind some exposure in spots. Trip Report
Certainly a rugged little peak. Doesn't mess around - steep the whole time. The wash is full of surprisingly solid rock, which makes upward progress a little easier than expected. Very straight-forward route finding and fun rock scrambling above the saddle on the ridgeline. Wouldn't want to get off route on this one, though, as cliffs abound up high.
Climbed this rugged peak with a SAHC group.
We parked SUV's near the mine shaft at 830 feet,
hiked up rugged wash to saddle 2300 to 2400',
then west ridge to top. Lower ridges very
nasty looking on this peak.
You need Cabeza Prieta permits for this hike.
