Ascent Trip Report

Found my planned unmarked and unmaintained route to the summit as weather moved in. Was hoping to summit as part of a 3 day solo sprint around Ventana starting from Junipero Serra's base. Map was incorrect, no trail where indicated (confirmed by GPS) - be careful! There are other approaches that are more established trails. Exposed to thunderstorms up on the ridge and especially near the summit, but should be quite approachable in more favorable conditions (or if you take the road that goes nearly all the way to the top, of course).
