Ascent Trip Report

Pretty straight forward. Chihuahua Valley road off of Highway 79. Head east until we saw the sign to Lost Valley road bearing right for 4-5 miles until we came to the PCT trail. Followed the PCT trail north for about an hour until we saw the cairn on the west side of the trail. Then followed the trail and cairns to the top. Beautiful 360 view. Excellent views of Santo Rosa peaks, Jacinto, Coyote Mt. Villager, etc. Easy bag.
Walking north on the PCT brought to mind a multitude of memories when my brother Boyd and I hiked a big chunk back in 1983... wow.
