Ascent Trip Report

Road is in good shape to Mortero Palms. Came in from SDGE off of 2 but needed satellite views to make sure I was heading the right way because of all the roads for the wind turbines. Headed up the canyon to see Mortero Palms on the way up. There are lots of possible routes and ridges from here. Coming back at the very end was slow going climbing down and around all the dry falls but overall this hike was excellent. Absolutely love the terrain once you get out of the first canyon. Feels like another planet.
