Had to work this morning and again this afternoon so only had time for a short hike today. Inspired by trekkin_gecko, we figured this would be a cool area to explore. I did see where gmaclachlan and a group had hiked the area in 2016 so I exchanged a PM with him, thanks for the quick response. Really neat area, the base is almost like a valley. Several ways to climb up the golden rock, we took two of them, one on each side of Helmet Rock. There was a cool tunnel like area on the second climb up. We weren't able to get to the top of Helmet Rock, the last push is pretty steep with lots of loose granite. Saw 1 Gila Monster, no snakes.
