Ascent Trip Report

Due to a late season snowstorm I chose not to do the snow slog up the peak because of a recent ACL surgery. I am trying to stay to easy trail hikes right now. On top of that I came in from the north and there was a snowdrift still not melted out going up the switchbacks to Hinkey summit which turned me back. I was going to do the loop but I had to go back the way I came. If I come here this time of year again it will be with skis, looks like a hell of a ski run off this thing.
