Ascent Trip Report

we camped at the trinity river campground, whose entrance is directly opposite the 38N35 road up to bonanza king lookout. the road had been graded recently and was in good condition, other than some rough sections near the top. SUVs should be able to make it.

from the saddle we visited the lookout first (not staffed / not open), and then proceeded across the ridge toward the high point. there were numerous snow covered portions we had to cross. there is occasional brush to stomp on (not really a bushwhack). the traverse is a mix of scree and reasonably good rock.

there is a register at the point marked 7036T, but this is not the high point. the high point is the next bump further north: that's where a second register is found, placed by richard carey.

great views.
