Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Bill Simpson, Virginia Simpson, Ryan Lynch, Reddy Yetur

Via HPS Rte 2 going up, Rte 1 coming down. Ryan on point all the way there and back. The use trail's in pretty good shape; a few brushy spots here and there but overall it was clear and not too difficult to follow. This thing's horrifically steep, but recent rain had moistened the soil real nicely so it wasn't even really very loose. Great weather out there too. We crossed right over Pk 5030 on our way down Rte 1.
