Ascent Trip Report

Up and over Saddleback to the Horn. Talked to the groundskeepers who gave the scoop:
-Easiest way up and over is to go to the last condos, all the way to the left, and to follow a path to the cut trail
-They maintain a trail for skinners to the top of the ski area

Trail was mostly ice/crusty snow from the summit over to the Horn. Overall a very easy day - but look out for the snow in the forecast, as there is a treed-in portion in the col between the two summits that likely gets a lot of snow drift.

Overall my GPS mapped me at around 6.5 total miles, a solid mile shorter than I anticipated but not surprised
