Ascent Trip Report

Laura and I climbed Red Tahquitz, Grey Tahquitz, Tahquitz Peak and Lily Rock from Humber Park as as semi loop day hike. Trip stats include ascents of all four peaks. Also, Laura and I followed an occasional duck from Tahquitz Peak to Lily Rock. However, I recall that the route I climbed back on 08-26-2014 (please see my GPS track from that ascent) as being easier then the route that Laura and I did this time around. The summit block has a couple of easy, but exposed, class 3 moves on it.
