Ascent Trip Report

This was the fourth peak gained on this hike. Stayed overnight at the Bonita Campground. Started hiking at 7:00 am towards the summit of Robinson Mountain. Made it to the summit of Robinson Mtn then headed north to gain O'Leary west peak. We chose a direct route in lieu of dropping down to the road that takes you to the O'Leary lookout. After gaining the summit we dropped down on the east side to the dirt road and walked up to O'Leary lookout. From lookout we used the dirt road to drop down until we were at a switch back that put us on the NW side and below Darton Dome. After gaining the summit, we chose to return back towards the dirt road and descent a few miles in lieu of using a direct route to the SW from the summit as we were tired to traveling down sandy cinder rock. GPS track is from lookout to starting point.
