Started at Cove Oasis, went to saddle between Indio and Coyote. Took the ridge to Indio, placed a new register on the summit. Returned to saddle following a gully system, then climbed Coyote BM. There was already a register in a glass jar on Coyote. Nice views from both peaks. Pleasantly surprised to find a page for Indio on Summitpost :)
We were in La Quinta Cove for kids' spring break (and avoiding human interaction during the COVID-19 pandemic) so this was a perfect loop for my son and me to hike from our rental home. We did it counter-clockwise, total time was a bit over 4 hours. There were several pools and a bit of flowing water in the canyon on the way up. The dryfall mentioned in the route description isn't a big deal. I bypassed it, my son climbed straight up, and I think his line was safer. No other obstacles. Previous sign-in was 2/27/19 (Bob Burd), so kind of cool that a peak so accessible to development is climbed so rarely. If you regularly climb off-trail desert peaks, this one is great and not particularly difficult.
6:45 to 1:10.
