Ascent Trip Report

I approached Peak 5614 from the north end of Hyatt Reservoir. I followed East Hyatt Lake Road to Wildcat Hills Road and took this good road until it ended in a clearing not far from the summit. This summit is right on the PCT, but the road stops just short of reaching the PCT. I hiked crosscountry up a grassy slope directly towards the summit. At the top of the grassy area, I entered a wooded stretch that then opened up near the rocky summit. I climbed about halfway up the rocks and found the PCT. I followed the PCT to the summit. There is a false summit before the high point is reached. Nice views.
