Ascent Trip Report

I had the pleasure of meeting peakbagging legends Greg Gerlach and Keith Christiansen at the Cold Springs TH, who were on a 5 day peakbagging sweep of Northern CA. As we hiked to the high point, I picked their brains their many adventures.
Though the high point itself was underwhelming, the hike along the PCT to the short use trail was very pleasant. We stopped and spoke with several through hikers, who also shared some of their adventures. I teased poor Greg and Keith about having to eat trail food at the camp they were going to set up for the night in preparation for their next day, as I planned to stop at Logan's Roadhouse in Chico, on my trip back to Sacramento.
