Ascent Trip Report

Started in the evening and reached the summit right at sunset. Had the entire place to myself it seemed. It was clear enough to see the skyscrapers of downtown LA as well as Catalina Island in the distance. Hiked down in the dark and enjoyed the view of Venus and the crescent Moon as well as Jupiter in the east.
