Ascent Trip Report

Note on track: from signs on the trail, it appears the PCT has been re-routed to loop around the S & NW sides of Point 7798.

On the way up the 4WD road, I short-cutted up the old road along the ridgecrest. Clear but very steep; not recommended unless you really like that or need to save a few minutes.
