Ascent Trip Report

Small group of four met up at the message board at the junction of plum canyon wash and SR78. Then drove up plum canyon wash; staying to the right at the "y". drove mostly to the end but parked short since we were going to do a loop hike returning from the other part of the "y". Two of the three vehicles were sedans which we had no troubles driving in nor turning around. The jeep trail was hard pack.

Started hiking about 0845. Went up the wash following the CA Riding & Hiking Trail until it crests the ridge line and begins to descend. We turned right (north) to hike to point 2756. There is a use trail here and there to point 2756. Good views. Returned via the same route back to the CRHT. Then continued up (cross country) the ridges from bump to bump first to point 2937, 3300, and 3640 (North Pinyon HP). Signed the register at point 2937. Signed the register at peak 2640 (North Pinyon HP).

Returned via point 3300 before dropping down into the canyon wash (. Neat bouldering along the bottom all the way out. There are a couple dry falls which are easy to navigate. Reached the end of the other "y" and continued down the wash/road until just east (abreast) of the vehicles. Then went up/over the small ridge to the vehicles.

Total stats include all stops (photos, registers, sharp plant avoidance, 45 min break at the top, etc.) 5hr 45min; 6.8 miles.
