Ascent Trip ReportSo i headed out today to climb Mt. Markham and San Gabriel Peak and surrounding peaks, but was stopped short by the road closure which i had no idea of. stupid on my part. anyways i went to santa monica mtns. and clibed a loop of Sandstone Peak, Exchange Peak, Inspiratoin Point, Boney Peak, Tri-Peaks, and Big Dome. I couldn't see a thing for most of the day. Very pleasant run/hike. The entire loop took about 4 hours. Waaaay more bushwacking than i wanted to do.
