Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Bill Simpson

via a variation on DPS Route A. Camped a bit short of the 4WD parking spot at a flat spot with old mining equipment laying around and a couple of fire-pits already built. Set off from camp and headed for the saddle at top of the creek to our north rather than head up the traditional gully route for Route A. Once on the saddle we turned east and followed the ridgelines to the summit. Windy (and cold!) up top. Fantastic views!!
