Ascent Trip Report

We were up with the sun again and got an early start on Old Dad. We selected Old Dad for Sunday because Keith needed a shorter hike to make it to the SPS Banquet and I figured I would spend the afternoon in Victorville with my son. We followed the standard DPS route up the peak, which is a very enjoyable Class 2 if you stick to the main rib. Flipping through the register revealed the usual DPS hikers and 1-2 ranting anti-Sierra Club assholes. Old Dad has plenty of trip reports and ascents, so there is not much more that Keith and I can add to the info already out there. We were out early, and after lunch at the Mad Greek in Baker, Keith was off to the SPS banquet and I was catching a round of Frisbee golf in Victorville with my son. Pics
