Ascent Trip Report

Went up HPS route 3 and came down route 1. Hitchhiked back to my car to complete the loop. Going up route 3 was a mistake -- It lulls you into thinking it will be an easy climb at the start with a nicely maintained trail and by the end, you are bushwhacking for your life. If you do decide to go up route 3 (don't) pants and poles are a must.
