Ascent Trip Report

Third peak on our three T's assent. Left Telegraph about 11:00, arived on Timber at about 12:15. From here we returned to Baldy Ski Area. Four members of my group missed the right turn onto the Three T's trail. Fortunately for Debbie and Greg I saw them pass it and got there attention to turn around. I could see Chris and Neal far ahead going the right way, and hoped that Jim and Susan had also made the turn. But as I watched ahead as we dropped to the saddle between Timber and Telegraph it became aparent Jim and Susan headed down the wrong way. They realized there mistake when they hit Ice House Saddle and turned around. Susan caught up with us just as we were asending above the Thunder/Telegraph saddle. Jim arived 10 minutes or so after we reached the ski area parking lot.
