Ascent Trip Report

Up via the PCT from Sonora Pass, nice hike, didn't bother with any of that shortcut stuff, as the PCT is super fast tread and grade.

Left the PCT at the appointed spot and ascended the E ridge, but via the NE swales along it, staying under some remnant snow. I cairned it a bit, there were a couple of cairns but not soon enough to be of assistance from the PCT. Huge flat top, all tiny matchbooks of flat plates. I did it in about 2:40 up 1:50 down. Really an easier hike than I thought it would be. Hazy from forest fires.
