Ascent Trip Report

Walked up through Crafton Hills campus and remains of golf course to trailhead with my brother Daniel. He accompanied me for about 2 miles, at which point he turned around to run home. I continued on finding the distance a little more than I anticipated. The last 200 feet did tire me out, but I made it and continued over to the other subpeak (Zanja benchmark). But I only found a benchmark at Zanja peak. On route down pretty much followed the fire road, finishing after dark.
