Ascent Trip Report

Group hike with UCIMC Hiking Club. Took a very moderate pace due to all the hiking newbies. Followed HPS Route #1, got 13 of the 15 to the summit. One had to turn back due to altitude, and one went with to escort her down (only about 1/4 mile from TH). Still a little snow on the ground in a few places, but very minimal, and the trail was very clear and easy to follow, minus the off trail ramble over to the summit block. Great views and a beautiful, clear day.
