RISCO PEAK, BAJA CALIF., XMAS HOLIDAYS
During the Christmas Holidays Graham Stephenson, Lothar Kolbig, Bud and Bep Bingham made an attempt to climb Risco Peak in Baja. The most prominent peak above the springs seemed at the time the most likely mountain to climb. This peak is no less than third class and most people need a rope.
After a good deal of trouble getting on one high point after another, the summit was reached. Only 4 names were in a tin can register. This the high point of the area and a most worth peak. Other high points in the area are mostly ridges and do not dominate the area.
It should be established which summit is the listed peak. The one we climbed has a beautiful buttress and lots of sheer rock. Arky Erb, Andy Smatko, Alden Sorbo, and Mike McNicholas were the only names in the register.
