Ascent Trip Report

Long hike with Zach. Got a super late start and got to the trailhead at 4 pm. Summited near sunset and watched the sun go down as lights flickered in Orange County to the west, LA to the north, and the Inland Empire to the east. It can be a very beautiful spot. Hiked down totally in the dark by headlamp and earned some silver dollar sized blisters on my heels.
