Ascent Trip Report

A blustery northeast wind day, October 12, 2018, with an occasional morning shower coming off the desert. Started at Pine Canyon Road, N2, and PCT at mile marker 13.6 elevation 3930. Straight up, south, 3.5 miles on the single track, the PCT. All the way to the ridge, a broad grassy summit. Elevation 5760. Plenty of rabbit bush buzzing with bees, northeast winds blowing 10-15 mph with a gust of 25.7 mph. Partly cloudy skies and a temperature of 64 degrees on top. On the way down, two thru hikers and a rattled rattlesnake coiled and ready. Wow, all on top of the San Andres...
