Ascent Trip Report

Came down from Tahquitz Pk (8846') through some Class 4/5 cliffs interspersed with scree in brush. Indications were its best to come in from south after reaching 8000' elevation, probably from the South Ridge Trail. It's also possible to come directly up trail going south (and approx level) from Hummer Park, the way I went down, although its loose steep sandy slope would have been hard going up.
