Ascent Trip Report

Hiked the PCT from Canebrake Road but didn't check map and went beyond the peak, thinking it was on the other side of the PCT, saw a peak with an antenna on it and figured that must be it. Then checked the map and saw I had gone by the correct peak by quite a bit! I also went beyond the true summit to see if the next peak was higher. 14.7 miles, 6 hr. 30 min. total.
