Ascent Trip Report

I had planned on leaving Medford OR early Monday morning, but then had the chance to see an old friend, so didn't leave there until after noon. I had written down the I-5 exit to take but that was all the info I had so once I got off the freeway I checked SummitPost to get the rest of the info. I didn't get to the trail head until about 4 pm but decided to go ahead and do the hike anyway because I wanted to be at Lake Tahoe by the weekend and wanted to climb a number of the PCT county high points on the way south. It was a bit cool and windy on the top, so only spent a few minutes there, but made it back before sunset and then drove down the mountain farther to camp where it was lower and warmer. Total time 3:13 RT. The first of 6 PCT county high points this week.
