Ascent Trip Report

Hike #2 for the day, after successful summit of Garnet Mountain and Peak and a little geocaching along the way, we realized there was still a lot of daylight left so why not do Monument Mountain.

Took Big Laguna to PCT and went left, about a 1/4 mile after it makes a wanders out and around, took a side trail (PCT makes a sharp left and you can see the towers atop Monument, there is a side trail which goes straight ahead, unmarked and not well maintained)
Joined the access road near the top for the last 1/4 mile and successful summit achieved! Once again super winds made it hard to enjoy the summit, did a quick geocache and headed back to the car
Summary Total Data
    Quality:5 (on a subjective 1-10 scale)
    Route Conditions:
Maintained Trail, Unmaintained Trail
    Weather:Pleasant, Extremely Windy, Clear
