A short mining road south of the pass about one mile east of Bock Spring was the campfire site for 14 Desert Peakers and friends on Saturday. The night was pleasant except for a few mosquitoes.
Early Sunday morning 12 of the group started for the peak which was reached in time for lunch after some bushwhacking and up and down climbing on the long approach ridges. The weather was perfect and provided fine visibility in all directions. Snow-capped Charleston Peak was particularly impressive.
The cars were reached in good time for the return trip.
The next time this peak is scheduled, advantage should be taken of the much better approach road which passes through Tecopa just east of Highway 127. By following the signs to Bock Spring but continuing one or two miles beyond the spring, it is possible to be on paved road for all except the last 7 or 8 miles.
