Mixed gender FKT. YEW!
Really incredible route. Starts off with a run on easy trail approaching the canyon, then you drop down into the stream bed where you spend a couple miles doing super fun bouldery moves on beautiful red/pink/orange rock and slab. The colors and textures are amazing. Then scree and slab to the top! (After a couple of false summits.)
No Bighorn Sheep today, although I know they're in the area because I saw some yesterday.
There descent through the bouldery sections was super fun and I found myself laughing and smiling the whole way.
A really amazing experience!
Thanks to Jason for the companionship on this fun adventure run!

From Jason:
Wow, that was so fun!

The rock is beautiful!

the wash you climb is bouldery and playful!

The view is awesome!

Loved it! Thanks for the recommendation Chris Gorney!

We went 2:16:02 car to summit
10:05 on summit goofing off
And 1:26:23 summit to car

For maximum bouldery fun, stay to the wash!
