Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club DPS Outing***
Led by Jim Fleming, Tina Bowman, Dave Perkins

Group took a route that was two ridges south of the ridge identified in the DPS Peak Guide to summit. This different ridge required ascending/descending several bumps to remain along ridge high point and decrease exposure to brush. Group took a route off the peak that was one ridge south of the ridge identified in the DPS Peak Guide. Beautiful area forested with dense pine, juniper, etc. Great views on summit. This peak was my 6th DPS peak and made me eligible to join the DPS.
