Ascent Trip Report

From Sacramento, drive South on I-5 138 miles to Little Panoche Road, J-1, signed Mercey Hot Springs (it's a private resort). Continue west then south for 14 miles, turning left on a gravel road marked with a BLM sign, an eighth mile before the Mercey Hot Springs Resort. Continue up main road 4 to 5 miles, taking the right fork when almost up to the ridge. Park 9 miles after leaving paved road. Walk along a lightly traveled dirt road going up and west for .2 miles. There's a USGS collector on top that looks like an old radio antenna
