|Easy desert loop incorporating the lower part of an unnamed canyon that cliffed us out on a previous trip. This time we walked up from below to get an idea of the extent of the impassable dry falls.
We started up the unnamed canyon that eventually leads to peak 3,094'.
It's easy going, then we reached the base of the tricky area, which proved to be tricky going up to. It appeared to be 2 dry falls between us & where my gps track ended from above.
We backtracked slightly to bypass via a smaller side wash, which had no insurmountable obstacles. Eventually we reached the saddle west of Pk. 3,094'. It had a nice view but we opted for our break just below due to the windy conditions.
On the way down:
