Ascent Trip Report

Peak #2. Parked at TH off the S1 and hiked .5 mile to the PCT, another 1 or so along the PCT and then an easy 3/4 mile or so through the high desert/boarder mountain scrub brush (there was a clear trail - GREAT maintenance) to a service road near the top. Hiked past a helipad and then to the base of monstrous antennas. Found a very small bench mark. Nice views of the desert! Polst-hike beer at Alpine Beer Co with Nate - the best part about the day.
