Ascent Trip Report

Trip with Norcal Peak Hikers

Interesting hike passing through limestone, vocanics with petrified wood, back into limestone and into a granitic igneous intrusive. Some interesting outcrops near the summits, an apparent hunters grave, some mining prospects, an old wooden trough and other relicts.

The summit is marked by a 6-foot rock cairn. There are two tin cans holding the summit register at the base of the cairn, on the east side. There was no USGS monument.

Oreana Pk to the east could be added to these two peaks to make a 3-peak day that isnt too hard. Probably less than 15 miles RT for all three.
