Ascent Trip Report

First of all, I’d like to congratulate Tom, a hiker I saw going up while I was on the way down, for being the first person to ever recognize me from this website while hiking on a trail. Pretty cool. I’m famous now. Tom, if you’re reading this, send me an email and I’ll send you something useful.

Now for the hike. This was the first time I even bagged a peak with a group, which was SoCal Hikers and Peakbaggers. It was a group of five of us that arranged carpooling and was led my Maya, a very capable hike leader.
