Ascent Trip Report

Started at the Fuller Ridge trailhead. Didn't see another person until I was past Little Round Valley and ascending the switchbacks to the peak. Started out sunny, then got cloudier and cooler the higher I went. At the summit, it was windy and cold, with a short-lived light rain. After about an hour on the summit, the Sun came out and warmed everything up. Incredible views of San Gorgonio and the San Bernardino Mountains, the vast interior of Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs, and the San Jacinto range.
