Ascent Trip ReportOriginal plan was to park at Rainbow Lane (34°10'25.0"N 116°43'02.5"W). Due to the signage ("Fire Lane", "No Parking", "Private Property"), I opted to drive up the road just a bit to the Onyx Summit trailhead. I had used this area for parking in the past and knew the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) would take me very close to my destination.
Leaving the parking area, hiked up the road just a bit to the intersection of the PCT and headed South. The trail was mostly descending for the first couple of miles. There was patchy snow, but it was fresh and easy to walk on. Followed the PCT ~3.5 miles until I was basically due West of Wysup Peak. Started a cross-country route to the peak and ran across what appeared to be an un-maintained trail. A moderate ascent to just below the peak and then some scrambling to reach the summit.
