Ascent Trip ReportWith Dan Richter drove to Placerita Cyn to take Los Pinetos Trail but road was closed (for reasons unknown) about 1.5 miles before Park & TH, so we drove around to south side thinking to drive May Canyon Truck Trail up almost to peak, but road was closed to driving, so we walked up road then directly up south ridge at about 2560' (a little past May Canyon). There's a rope to aid the start for about 10 feet. Ridge continues with fairly steep sections. At about 3280' (near the number 14 on topo) the ridge east of May Cyn joins up (probably gentler). Continued to easternmost closed contour (3880'+) and over more bumps to May Peak. Cloudy day and even chilly up at top. Descended NW to road and down road to car.
