Ascent Trip Report

Multiple Peak Bags with Peter Dagget. Great day for a hike - we parked near Ranchita, with the intention of bagging White benchmark, San Ysidro, and the Thimble. Took just under an hour to reach the white BM - found the marker and small register can. Slight bit of bushwhacking and consulting of topo map to make sure we were headed towards the right "bump". Not a hard climb - just very sandy as we neared the summit. Some bushwhack - but not too scrubby (aka desert floor). Slight scramble to summit rock.
