Ascent Trip Report

Up HPS Route 2 - a very easy route with a trail most of the way - the only hard part of this route was finding the beginning - the gate next to the cattle chute is the one is unlocked and gives you access to the route via public land. You have to work your way around the fenced lot once you go through the gate but once you do that you will pick up a good trail - try to stick to it because it makes for an easy hike. The summit block on Cone Peak is a fun little Class 3 scramble that is pretty easy as far as Class 3 goes. I took HPS Route 1 down which was a little more bushy than Route 2 until I hit the PCT, but it wasn't too bad. I realized I left my hat near the summit - I'm sorry for leaving it out there and really missed having it on the way down.
