Ascent Trip Report

Knocked off work early and headed up with the wife and dogs. First time on this trail. Got to Dirty Harry's balcony much quicker than we thought we would. That was our main objective. But after a snack at the balcony we decided to go uphill to scout Dirty Harry's peak for a future visit.

The creek crossing at approx 3000 feet had water on it for a couple hundred feet of length. Nothing difficult though. After a couple switchbacks, at approx elevation of 3400 feet decided to turn back. Had a chance of the summit but the whole descent would have been in the dark and thats a long rocky path to descend with just head lamps.
