Ascent Trip ReportThis was a private hike with Amin Faraday, and Wasim Khan. This peaks are off the Sunrise Highway in San Diego. We parked at a gate about 4 ½ miles south on Sunrise. Parked on the right side, near a sign that said Lucky 5 Ranch. We crossed the highway, around a locked gate and started down the road. This was a loop hike of Oriflamme, Oriflamme North and Roost. Roost is on the San Diego list. The other two are Peakbagger bumps. All three of these peak are below the altitude of the car (5000’). We were following Greg Gerlock’s route. We found registers on all three peaks. Back at the car, we started up the Sunrise trail to do Peak 5444. We followed the trail to a point about 100 yards past a large post that was on our left. We could see the peak and headed for it, trying to walk around the knee high brush as much as possible. On the summit we found a register. Returned the same way. Back at the car, we drove back Sunrise to the parking spot for the Sunrise trail. Crossed the road and headed east the short distance for Gar. We did find a benchmark.
