Ascent Trip Report

Drove up to the Mount Pinos Nordic Ski Center near the peak. From there simply follow the forest road west to the summit antennae compound. Views surprisingly poor for such a prominent peak - flattish summit prevents looking down to surrounding valleys and distant views were verz hazy due to the desert heat.
