Ascent Trip Report

Full report to and summitpost. This ascent made me a completer of California's 58 county highpoints, a feat I thought I accomplished a couple years ago on North Palisade. Last autumn, however, Jerry Brekhus discovered this Placer County liner on the Nevada border with ONE measly 40' contour line higher than Granite Chief, the previously assumed Placer COHP.
