|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6271 ft / 1911 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHike #2 for the day, after successful summit of Garnet Mountain and Peak and a little geocaching along the way, we realized there was still a lot of daylight left so why not do Monument Mountain.
Took Big Laguna to PCT and went left, about a 1/4 mile after it makes a wanders out and around, took a side trail (PCT makes a sharp left and you can see the towers atop Monument, there is a side trail which goes straight ahead, unmarked and not well maintained)
Joined the access road near the top for the last 1/4 mile and successful summit achieved! Once again super winds made it hard to enjoy the summit, did a quick geocache and headed back to the car
