Ascent Trip Report

I had the honor of leading a Monday Maniacs Hike today. From the Cedar Springs Trail trailhead up to 6684, over to Cone Peak, up the ridge to Palm View, South on the PCT and up to Pyramid Peak then north on the PCT to Cedar Springs Trail and down. A very nice day with about 10 miles and 2600 ft. of elevation gain. My second time to Cone and this time I was able to get up on the Summit Block. First time the wind was howling and very gusty. To risky to try the summit block on that day.
