Ascent Trip Report

A fire lookout previously sat on top of the easternmost and highest of the three summits here. Given that we’d seen no one on the upper part of the road today, we parked directly under the saddle between the middle and east peaks, and dove in to what was either a faint use trail, or just a break in the brush. Reaching the saddle, we turned right and continued through some branches and poison oak to the summit area, where there are some large rock outcroppings and a big metal pole sticking out of the ground. We passed to the right of the outcroppings along what may have previously been a road bed, doubling back to finding the highest rock on the east end. Some metal bars and poured concrete are the only remnants of the lookout. The highest rock has good views north over Fort Hunter Liggett.
