Ascent Trip Report

Three of us Monday Hiking Maniacs left early at the crack of dawn to bag Jim Benchmark which is on Richard Carey's San Diego Peak and Benchmark list ( and Peak 3226 on the way up to Palm Mesa. We then met the other 9 people over on Peak 4480+ before going down a second ridgeline. There are registers on all three peaks. 13 miles prox. with over 4,000' of gain for the day getting back to the cars at sunset for a very long day.

Benchmark is missing, only wood and wire remaining, but there is a register.
