Ascent Trip Report

Forecast claimed a low of 11C and high of 23C. Temp at the Mines Road gate read -2C (yes, below freezing) at 6:45am. South Pocket stays very cool at night. The temp later heated up to 22C, but the first hour was probably chilly as evidenced by the frost-kissed grass.

The route probably consists of a wide, graded dirt road that follows the ridge providing clear views all the way east to the Sierra.

Boardman N, as seen in an an artist's depiction just past Boardman, probably has a marker and geological equipment on top. I'd imagine that shrubs would block all but the western views from on top, too.

Having never really visited the area myself, the South Pocket route to Boardman N would probably be very straightforward and not really require any GPX file; but if you think you need one as a reference, then I could probably be reached via email for what such a file might look like.

Probably.
