Ascent Trip ReportI Did the seven peak San Jacinto loop. Took the first tram.Started out with Cornell, didn't climb the last 15', a bit too sketchy on a solo hike without protection. Next up was Jean and then on to Marion, had a few route finding issues.Over to Newton Drury, a pleasant little mound. Up to Folly and over to San Jacinto. Last stop was Miller. Was on track to finish in 11.5 hours, but 1.5 miles before the tram station I came across an older gentleman who had trouble getting down. His back went out and he didn't have walking poles. It took over 2 hours to get down. Made the last tram with just minutes to spare.
