Ascent Trip Report

My Thursday hikng club ascended Lobo Peak via the Yerba Canyon Trail. My conditioning hasn't fully recovered form a serious infection last year, and I fell behind about half way up. Reached the saddle between Lobo and Perra Peak and headed back down Yerba Canyon th rest of the group descended via Manzanita.

This trail involves numerous stream crossings for the first couple of miles and then an extremely steep ascent up to Lobo Ridge (20%+). I was worn out when I reached the bottom.
