Ascent Trip Report

Went up the wash. Pretty easy to figure out the route to the summit. I decided to make things “interesting” on descent and took the ridge which I wasn’t much of a fan. I ended up going back into the wash just before it joins with the PCT. Threw my poles down the dry waterfall and just as I was about to take my first step in down climbing I realized there was a rattler sun bathing in my foothold. Gave me a huge scare. He wasn’t interested in moving so I had to figure a way around and retrieve my poles that were right next to him. That was exciting.
