Ascent Trip Report

Prep hike for Whitney following San Jacinto camp and peak. From 10 Fwy in Redlands took 38 Hwy east to Valley of Falls Drive to TH parking lot in San Bernadino National Forest. Took a rest (1/2hr) at half-way camp (8,150') before pushing on to summit due to heat. Lucky no fires in area; slow hike from 10,000' to summit!
