Ascent of Point Mountain on 2010-06-29
|Date:||Tuesday, June 29, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5128 ft / 1563 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI drove to Point Mtn from nearby Bald Mtn. I drove out to the dead end little spur road that accesses the north side of the peak. This was a mistake. It was a steep bushwhack up to the ridge and then it was still a bushwhack along the ridge to the summit. It is easier to just hike up the grassy slopes from the road on the south side of the summit. I did find a dirt bike trail that I followed for a ways when coming down that was on the south side below the brush. It didn't go directly over the summit. There is some poison oak near the summit. Views were limited by the brush. On the south slopes there are good views. Both the north and south slopes are steep.
