Got a late start.
This is a mean angry hike that is best taken when you are full of ire and dislike of all humankind past, present and future.
Starting point = saddle beyond Toruno tank. This is above the overturned truck. You will need a 4wd to get to this point and a tank to go on from here.
Walk, trip, slide, fall, roll down the "road" into the canyon to the dam and stay in the canyon and go to butte 4833.
Make a beeline up the hill. I think its 600 feet in elevation gain.
A cow path comes and goes close to the canyon right below the butte
If you are not being scratched from Cats Claw then you aren't on the "path".
-
This is also the point where you can head to the canyon on the right to go to Ramanote Arch

-
8:45 left truck.
9:40 - canyon below butte 4833
10:15 register at butte. - Took a beeline straight up to the butte.
turned around at 1:00 not reaching end because of wind.
It felt like the wind was trying to blow everything off of 4833 ridge.

Back at the truck at 5:26
-
There were some fresh footprints in the canyon that took a turn toward Puerta de la Cruz.
They also took some side trips.
There are several old camps for illegals hidden along the way so maybe it was BP.
-
Slammed my head into a low lying tree truck and now my neck hurts.
I wish I had stayed home and watched Criminal Minds.
