Cross country summit hike in Anza Borrego. Take the Rockhouse Truck Trail from S-22 toward Clark Dry Lake. Find the east side ridge that goes all the way up. The trail is marked with a cairn or two as well.

We parked by the two abandoned tractor tires off a small side road. It's rocky but easy to navigate, no bushwhacking. The peak is large and relatively flat. You need to walk the perimeter to get good views off each side.

Short and steep with great views. Follow the ridge line up from the Rockhouse Truck Trail. There is a bit of a use trail, and it is pretty much walk up all the way. Nothing past class 2. Nice views and a sense of solitude at the top. Good starter hike for Ysidro or Indianhead.
