Ascent Trip Report

This was an overnight.Parked at Vincent Gap and took the Vincent Gulch Trail down, dropped our packs and climbed a little hill,which is now called Peak 5135.We took the rocky south slope up. Continued on to where the 3 canyons meet. Took Praire Fork Trail,which became nonexistent after 5 mins. Bushwacked and walked in the stream for about 1 1/2 miles till we came out at Cabin Flats CG,it had been closed for some time.We ate and headed up the road to Lupine CG. Then on to Guffy CG. By now it was getting dark and super windy. We hiked the PCT about a 1/4 past Guffy and camped on a small bluff below the trail,out of the wind.The next morning we followed the PCT hitting Blue Ridge & Frost BM,on the way out we walked up a dirt road to some towers which is now Peak 7547,then back to the PCT and out to Inspiration Point. Hitched a ride back to our car at Vincent Gap.
