|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||7981 ft / 2432 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom the summit of Tehachapi Mountain, we headed down the southwest ridge, eventually coming across the road that would lead up Double Mountain. We followed the road to the east summit (the one with the communications equipment), before going back down to the saddle and up the use trail to the west summit. We didn't find a register, so we left a new one.
On the way back, we headed east of Tehachapi Mountain, and followed a different road, but to stay in the correct drainage we had to go off-trail and descend to the bottom of the canon due south of the campground. The bottom was narrow and brushy, making it difficult in places.
