Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and took the trail to the top of Tahquitz Peak (4.5 miles, 2200' gain, 2.5 hours), than followed HPS Route 2 down to Lily Rock. The route goes cross country below the ridge of Tahquitz Peak. We followed intermittent ducts and carefully picked our way through the rocks to the saddle located southeast of Lily Rock, which kept the route class 2 with one section of easy class 3. From the saddle, we had one awkward class 3 move to get to the summit. Afterwards, we descended back to Humber Park via the reverse of HPS Route 1.
