Ascent Trip ReportThis was a private hike with George Christiansen. First was Silver. We followed the HPS peak guide driving instructions to the 4x4 parking spot. We dropped down in the gully then hiked up the gully to the ridge then followed it up to the summit. On the way up, we into the old mine and walked to the end about ¼ mile (watch your head). From the summit, we went down a ridge just east of the gully. There was a register on the summit.
Next was Gold. We hiked went up the road short cutting at one point that saved us a mile. There as a benchmark but no register on the summit. From the summit we went down a north ridge to a point on the road just below where the PCT crosses the road.
