Ascent Trip Report

Another high-ish elevation attempt to escape the LA heat. I decided to forgo both of HPS's routes and take a cross-country route from Cloudburst Summit in order to shorten distance. I had heard that the gate at Islip Saddle was open and I was hoping to also bag Mts Lewis and Burnham (spoiler alert: the gate was locked). At times I found remnants of a use trail, but more often I just went "up". I think I reached Waterman's summit in under an hour. Could not find the register can, despite a lot of looking, so I gave up and continued on to Twin Peaks.
