Ascent Trip ReportI approached Henness Ridge from a gated dirt road off CA 41 by Yosemite West, less than 1/2 south of Chinquapin Junction. I followed this road uphill, stsying right when it branched, as it climbed graduall up the side of a wooded ridge. In about 1 mile I passed the upper part of the Yosemite West residential area and a gated dirt road connecting with it. I left the road I had been on soon thereafter and hiked the short distance X-C to the top of the ridge, not far from the Henness Ridge L.O. Though no longer in use and shuttered, it appears to be in good condition. An SBC technician was also here for monthly servicing the nearby microwave facility. He drives in via the Yosemite West road I passed near the top of the ridge.
