St Patrick's Day treat, following Zdon's route with extra beta from MoapaPk and Gimpilator. Map and compass did come in handy. Summit rocks are class 3 from this side. Route is mostly class 2/3. Saw two bighorns, a massive chuckwalla and a massive iguana.
Drove out from Las Vegas in the morning, so didn't start hiking up the mountain until after ten o'clock. Came down in the dark. #54 on my second DPS list finish. Went on to JTNP for Eagle and Pinto.
Matthew and I did this one in the morning, then the (much easier) East Ord Mtn in the afternoon, 100mi of driving apart. Fun times. Trip Report.
This is a great peak and one of my favorites on the DPS list.
Ascended the West Draw route with Heather. We climbed Aqua and Spectre the previous day. Almost stepped on a rattlesnake on the hike out.
