Ascent Trip ReportSee the description for Antimony Peak for the drive in to the trailhead for that peak. The hike over from Antimony is long and very strenuous. From the saddle just west of Antimony head northwest through the forest and descend the ridge down to a saddle at about 5520 feet. From there head north up the ridge and stay on the right (east) side of the minor peak with the closed contour of 6000 feet. Then go down to the lower saddle at 5037 feet crossing an open area with little vegetation at the bottom. Climb the slopes toward the rock bands and contour left (west) to find the ducked use trail up to the top. The start of the use trail is on the west side of the peak at about 5600 feet. UTM there is: 304948E, 3864543N. There is a heavy growth of manzanita and large boulders so it is best to find the use trail. The route is about 10 miles round-trip from the Antimony trailhead with a total gain of 2300 feet getting to Eagle Rest and a gain on the return of 3000 feet. Allow about 10 to 11 hours for this hike. Do this hike in cooler weather and take plenty of water. The Hundred Peaks Section has a route description starting from San Emigdio Creek north of Pine Mountain Club which is an easier hike. 5/01 RLC
