Ascent Trip Report

Decided to do Frankish and Stoddard since I had to be back for a DPS meeting and these were close enough. Started out very windy and cold, but when we rounded a corner to get out of the canyon with the Baldy road the wind virtually stopped and it was comfortably cool (warm when going up hill). Lots of bushwhacking on the final road to Frankish. We went up the ridge/firebreak but came down the brushy road as the firebreak was steep with pea gravel and loose stuff. Recommend taking loppers and clippers to help the route. The rest of the road route getting to this point is mostly clear and moves quickly. Stats include Stoddard.
