Ascent Trip Report

Stayed at the Bed & Breakfast in Benton Hot Springs, CA. Drove most of the way up the road across from the old brothel until we thought it was too rough for our rental. Started hiking at about 7:00 AM. Walked about a mile to the trailhead. Had a nice hike until we got to the rocks and scree. Got off the trail and had a lot of difficulty climbing on the rocks. Took a lot longer than normal. Signed the register and took some pictures and then headed down. We reached our Ford Expedition and then drove to Lone Pine, California to do Mount Whitney the next day. Desolate country. HP #4.
