Ascent Trip Report

Went by the normal route from the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Lovely forest, and good acclimitisation for attempt on Gorgonio the following day.

The day was enlived by a chance meeting with the guidebook author, Ralph Storer who, with his girlfriend Sandy was kind enough to let me walk with him most of the way up. Turns out he lives in my home town (Edinburgh), and we know some of the same people..
