Ascent Trip Report

Hiked along ridge (dirt) road from Sugarpine Mtn after leaving Sierra Club group on top. Reached locked gate 4 mi from LO and continued onto Lookout. Backtracked a few hundred feet as told by the SC group and found HPS trail through dense Chapparel leading to top of peak with register. Followed long dirt road back to car. All snow gone on way home, but it sure helped quench thirst on way in.
