Ascent Trip Report

We climbed California peak by doing a full ridge traverse. Our initial intent was to climb Raggedtop via Crow pass up a ridge to peak 4805 and then follow the ridge south to Ragged top. The NW ridge to Ragged top still had quite a bit of snow and the conditions didn't appear safe so we decided to continue directly W. towards Fishs Breath, California Peak, around to peak 4000 and descend down to the trail. It was a long rather epic day with a bit of a scramble descending from peak 4805, but in the end a great trip. I wish I knew the total distance and elevation gained.
