Ascent Trip Report

Laura and I ascended the peak from the west, starting at an open gate located along Lost Valley Road, which leads to a Boy Scout camp. This is the second time that I have done Peak 4695 - Collins Benchmark - Knob Benchmark as a semi-loop (please see my 02-08-2014 Collins BM trip report and GPS track for info on my first ascent), and our route and route finding was an improvement from my first ascent. Also, our round trip time was 11.5 hours. Trip stats and GPS track include ascents of all three peaks.
