Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Ryan Campground via the California Riding and Hiking Trail, headed cross country for the peak just past mile marker 23. Wasn't sure which peak was the summit but guessed the one on the right so went up the gully for awhile and then onto the ridge, where I finally found a very faint use path. Found the summit register can but no register inside. Also went and checked out the NW peak and that was lower, then went over to the W peak to make sure that was lower and from there saw the trail coming up the wash. Went down to the start of the old jeep trail in the wash, took that to the CRHT which was about 5 minutes west of where I had left it on the way up. A little longer but easier hiking. Distance down includes hiking around on top.
