Climbed the steeper gulley in an attempt to reach the highest peak. Hiked/climbed all the way up to a small saddle where I turned West and climbed up some rocks to reach a peak. To my disappointment I climbed the wrong one and was actually about 20 to 30 feet lower than the actual summit which turned out to be over to the East. Spent some time at the top admiring the view and interesting rock formations and hoping to see a desert bighorn sheep (to no avail).

Although I didn't have enough time or energy left to attempt the actual summit I did take some time eyeing the approach to it. Although from my vantage point it looked nearly impossible, I'm sure ill go back sometime soon and attempt to reach the top.

I would suggest to anyone attempting this hike to either bring a GPS or pay special attention to where your car is parked in relation to the mountain in order to find where you parked on the return trip. My GPS died on me during the hike back so I had difficulty finding where I parked. Considering the sun was setting and theres no trail back to the parking lot, I got lucky and ended up hitting the road a little less than a quarter mile away from where I was parked.
