Ascent Trip ReportParked at Red Box and took the Gabrieleno trl down to the mouth of Cloudburst cyn. Here we climbed the dam wall and at the old cabin we climbed the west cyn up to the ridge. Followed the ridge thru bushes and 1 scramble to where it meets the main ridge. Here we found snow and both our dogs promptly laid down on the snowdrift and went to sleep,so we ate our lunch.On the ridge we found faint trail which grew stronger as we neared Mt Deception's summit.Headed down the main trail to Mt Disappointment rd. Followed it down and near the end we hopped the guardrail and dirtsurfed the powerline clearing back down to Red Box.
