Ascent of Scrub Benchmark on 2010-12-04
|Date:||Saturday, December 4, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6786 ft / 2068 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis is a nice moderate hike with great views.
There is a gate on the road that comes in from old highway 91 from the north at about 5100', but the owner allows access to climbers, and hence we presumed hikers as well. That said, for folks wanting more exercise, the road makes for a descent walk. Once the road gets above 5200' or so, the road because much more eroded, but there are ample ways up to all the ridges that lead towards the summit.
We took the middle ridge up, and the east ridge down - the east ridge was easier to follow, but also longer, and with more ups and downs.
For those particularly lazy (if there are on this site), One can probably drive to the summit from the south (technically from the road going to Bullfrog Pass. Since I didn't walk or drive that, I can't be sure it goes thruogh, but from what I saw at the summit it looked good.
