Ascent of El Montanon on 2011-11-04
|Others in Party:||Adam Helman|
|Date:||Friday, November 4, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1808 ft / 551 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe took the Island Packers ferry to Scorpion Harbor, hiked the short road to Scorpion Campground, set up camp and then hiked out to El Montanon. The route is easy to follow and there is a road or trail all the way to the summit. A small comm building is on the summit. We returned to Scorpion campground using the other half of the Scorpion Canyon trail and spent the night.
The hardest part of doing this summit was the ferry crossing. The seas were rough and by the time we reached Scorpion harbor it was starting to rain. The wind blew steadily all afternoon and all night.
Great views from the summit.
