Ascent Trip Report

Parked off Hwy 4, just past Bear Valley on Forest Service Road 7N35 which is an OHV route. Started the hike at 7:30am with a temperature of 55 degrees. Followed the dusty dirt road up through a mixed coniferous forest and meadows, which had already peaked for wildflowers. Reached the saddle at 9am and continued west to the first of three candidate high point locations. Located the Alpine County survey marker past the barbed wire fence, but did not find the eastern candidate. Returned to the dirt road and proceeded to the northern candidate location on a nice promontory with a view. No register or benchmark, so placed a new logbook (in a baggy with pen) under a pile of rocks on the western waist-high rock at the summit just for giggles. Returned to the eastern candidate and found the rock cairn and register in a Gatorade bottle wrapped in tree bark just behind the cairn. Looked through many entries while enjoying the peace and tranquility of this place. Returned to car at Noon with a temperature of 82 degrees. Was not expecting such a nice hike in such a nice place.
