Looking south from the notch
Jim and Mina - these two have done alot of peaks all over. Very unusual to run into somebody out here, but was glad to have met them and share the summit with them.
The register we placed. Cori let us know there wasn't one up here when she climbed it last, so we brought one up.
Chip on Sheephead summit- first summit, first desert peak.

You can see the 178 down in the valley. (Desert Hound, Ashford, maybe Smith? out there)
Chip on our way down. Epaulet the dark capped peak to the right of Chip. The storm looked threatening but never really got bad.
Chips truck (dark spot) on the road below. Took a different ridge down, went fast and was fun.
