Ascent Trip Report

***Private Hike***

Tanya and I slept in Saturday and headed up to this recently reopened peak. Few have been up here since the area reopened on Memorial Day Weekend 2011, but enough to leave the occasional duck and other signs of their passage up the intial "kind of difficult to navigate" ridge from the parking area to Bump 6168. Once at 6168, the route is easy to follow along ridgeline firebreaks to the summit of Bare Mtn. Rather than just do a simple out and back, we followed the firebreak due south (rather than SW) from the summit to Forest Road 5N04, and then walked up and southwest to our car. Our route followed HPS route 1 to the summit, route 2 out.

Real hot out there, no shade to be found, and the breeze was absent for most of the day. Lots of wildflowers.
