Ascent Trip Report

Pulled off of lake Hughes rd and parked in the dirt next to the gate at Warm Springs Fish Cyn Truck trail. This is a long 6.5 mile road to the summit. At the summit the wind was so strong it was hard to hold the camera still to get photos of both BM's and we're the second to sign the new register.From the summit we were going to take the north/east shoulder ridge down to the power lines and save about 4.5 miles,but the wind was a sustained 50 mph and too hard to fight.So we went back the same way until we got to the turn of the 1st switchback. Here we found a old path west which took us over to the firebreak.The break was steep but soft dirt so it was easy,this cut off about 3/4 mile and we came out at the saddle and continued down to the car.
