Laszlo and I decided to conquer Damsel Peak yesterday. We both wanted to climb the mountain for a long time. It was taunting us everytime we drove home since it sticks out right in front of you as you drive up Thomas Ryan Drive in Sun City. We had only one day we could do it. We could not find anyone to join us so we decided to go off on our own. We started at about 7:30am from the dirt Kraft Mountain parking lot in Calico Basin. The only other way to get close to the mountain is to drive on private property. Our route stays on BLM land the whole way. This made the approach to the mountain much longer. It took us almost two hours hiking across the desert just to reach the mountain.
