Ascent Trip Report

Sierra Club's 18th Annual Waterman Mtn Rendezvous. My 25th HPS-listed peak; out and back hike with group of 7 on overgrown use trail from PCT/Hwy 2 junction (7,020' elev, mile marker ~57) to ski lift maintenance area, then roads to distant summit block. Signed peak register. Potluck lunch with 3 groups of Sierra Club hikers, met leaders, asked about future hikes. Solo'd back to car, no problems on descent though trail's sketchy.
