Up the south east ridge, down the standard route. A 20% chance of rain turned into a deluge. Glad I brought my rain jacket!
Great desert climb years ago
I went up the south east ridge one day, then up the wash the second day. Aside from the hellatious wind, it was a pleasant climb.
Funny, the earlier version for this page seems to have disappeared. Oh well, at least the mountains aren't as emphemeral.
Don't really remember much about this hike other than it was short and pretty easy. One of my first on the DPS list.
A very fun week in the desert. East Ord was the shortest hike I did on this trip, aside from the Kelso Dunes. There were a bunch of Coyote Gourds growing in the wash.
