Ascent Trip Report

John and I drove up to the North Loop trailhead in Kyle Canyon from the LA area, then backpacked up the North Loop trail to a saddle located east of Peak 3288 meters, where we set up camp. Afterwards, John and I continued up the trail to the top of Charleston Peak, then returned to camp. The next day, we backpacked down the trail, stashed our overnight gear, then climbed to the top of Mummy Mountain via DPS Route B. After signing the summit register, we returned to the trail, picked up our gear, then backpacked out to the truck. Also, please see my 07/16/2011 Mummy Mountain trip report for additional trip stats and info.
