Ascent Trip Report

We attempted to drive to the same trailhead from Geringer Grade Road. But at the first switchback, we were told by a driver coming down that the road was not passable shortly after. At that point, Weldon was only about 1.1mi away. We couldn't park 6 vehicles anywhere on Geringer Grade. We turned around and approached the trailhead from Claraville.
The direction to the peak from the trailhead was very straightforward. Lots of wildflowers and the gully from the PCT to the peak was totally covered with Miner's Lettuce. Note that the HPS peak location is the big boulder, instead of the rounded top indicated on peakbagger.com.
