Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day for a hike. A little warmer than I prefer, but it worked out ok. I started later than I hoped - a lot of stress lately caused me to oversleep. Doing a long hike today was plan B, but I made the best of it... Didn't see any humans from the time I left my car until I returned to Hwy 74 - very happy about that!! I thumbed through the register on Sheep to see who climbed the peak on the day I was born or on the day that Becca was born. No dice, but Ron Bartell climbed Sheep 1 week after I was born!

Take note: Peakbagger has the summit on the wrong bump up there on Martinez. The register is on the bump I climbed... Pics
