Ascent Trip ReportStarted from the Fobes Trail Head with an awesome group - 1.5 miles up to the saddle joining up with the PCT. From there we hiked steady to Spitler Peak, and then made a loop to tag Apache Peak as well. On the way out, we hit Palm View (I think that's the name... first prominent peak south of the Fobes Saddle). 3 peaks total - almost 14 miles RT and 4K feet of gain. Great weather - highs in the mid 60s, perhaps lower 70s in the sun. Windy towards the end of the day. Beautiful! Saw one PCT thru hiker resting at the saddle. Great day!
