Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Dave Comerzan, Peter Doggett, Ignacia Doggett, Mat Kelliher

The second (after Monte Arido & Old Man Mtn) in Tanya and my ongoing series of absolute slog hikes on road to peaks that are usually accessible as drive ups or short, pleasant trips.

The HPS Route 1 (6 mi RT, 1,300' gain) to Iron Mtn #2 from the north is un-doable due to road closure at Mill Creek Summit, so instead we approached from the south via Gold Creek road to the Yerba Buena Trail then back on road from the Iron Saddle to Iron Mtn. We picked up the Lower Peak's Mt McKinley on the way out.

Mileage and gain includes both peaks.
