Ascent Trip Report

South Fork trail to Zahniser peak - San Gorgonio mountain - Jepson peak - Little Charlton - Charlton - back via Dollar Lake. Mostly on trail with several cross country segments. We came down in a straight line from Charlton Peak to the Dollar Lake Saddle, that descent was HORRIBLE. Totals for the day were 20 miles and 6500-7000 feet, 12 hour hiking time. Aggravated a knee injury I had picked up the previous weekend on the descent from Charlton, and had to use an Ibuprofen tablet on a hike for the first time. Photos:
