Ascent Trip Report

We parked on the side of Reliz Canyon Road and hopped a gate with a faded No Trespassing sign, though the road soon entered the Los Padres National Forest. A few miles in at a junction we saw a pickup truck parked, but no one was around. We proceeded to the end of the road at a radio installation, but the actual peak is across a steep gap. We followed the barbed wire fence cross-country, staying on the south side and not encountering much brush. About halfway up the far side we needed to climb over another barbed wire fence perpendicular to the one we were following. At the summit we had a good view across the valley to Pinyon Peak, which doesn’t appear to have any way up it from this side. I left a summit register.
