Ascent Trip Report

we used the nordhoff truck road approach (call ojai ranger station for the required gate code). this was a fun road in the new range rover, lots of steep up/downhill to test things out. we had 5 people in the car.

hines was surprisingly tough for the final climb: steep and slippery slope. the knife edge wasn't too bad. quite a worthy peak (unlike many of the HPS peaks we've done in the past two days).
