I needed something short to get back in time for family stuff, so I thought Mrs. big_load and I would check out the petroglyphs before they're completely ruined. People were climbing all over them, including one woman who slid on her butt down one of the main panels. :x

We rock-hopped up the wash for a few hundred yards, and then a little more. At a shady pour-off, I could see rocks wedged above to augment a ledge, so I figured it was a trail and climbed up to it. It was well-traveled and copiously cairned; I figure it goes the back way up to 5057, but we turned around when time expired, so I'll find out for sure next time (I recorded a GPS track on the return). Even more thoughtless people were swarming over the petroglyphs on the way back, so we had to leave quickly before somebody went ranger on the crowds.

EDIT: After reviewing at some descriptions and triplogs, it looks like we were on our way up to the Ridgeline/5057. I guess I'm about due to check that one off. Maybe next year.
