1st trip
This is a nice ridge hike to Gibson Peak. I pretty much followed the ridge / kingsnake's route all the way. A bit of brush the last mile or so. The summit has some really nice red rock slabs and cliff edges :)

I was planning to do Gibson (and Cypress) from Stewart Pocket but when this ridge route showed up I decided this would be better for Gibson. Now I need KS to find the optimum route up Cypress ;)

I saw two deer along the ridge and a garter snake by the elaborate fire pit near "tank 2". I did a quick detour in round valley following some ribbons for a while not sure where that trail went but I looped around back to the start.
