You may pass mountain bikers grinding up this ascent, but they'll catch up on Teocalli Ridge Trail.
When West Brush Creek Road (738.2A) ends, take a right to get on Teocalli Mountain Trail. The climb gets tough, but that is offset by stunning Elk Mountain scenery. When you get near the top of the ridge you'll take a right onto Teocalli Ridge Trail.
Hang a left to bag 13,208' Teocalli Mountain as an out and back. If you do this, be sure of the route & plan accordingly with energy & layers.
