Ascent Trip Report

Obtained permission from the landowner (for Point 4285) before going. See other trip reports for contact information. I am unsure of the ownership of the eastern points, but did not see any signage after entering the first property. This might be worth investigating.

Hit all three candidate areas. The easternmost appears to be the highest, based on altimeter data (inconclusive) and CalTopo elevation data. The middle point is definitely the lowest.
