MoapaPkFaster route


Voted 10/10

Consider going directly up the ridge, as shown in this map and in this photo. It isn't necessary to take the round-about way suggested in Zdon's book and older DPS TRs. In fact, the current, very clear herd path goes directly up the ridge. I saw NO herd path for the supposed way around the backside.

I second this advice. The path on the northeast ridge is easy to follow and there only one or two moves of class 3 scrambling without much exposure. It would be a waste of time to go all the way around and not any easier.

Furthermore, 5 to 6 miles round-trip is not correct for this new standard route. It's more like 3.5.
