Ascent Trip Report

Two updates from previous trip reports on this site:
1. Someone had indicated that bikes are not allowed, but there is now a sign on the gate that indicates bikes are now explicitly allowed.
2. There is a user detour because of high rock fall hazard on Hug Point Road. The detour is indicated by a map just past the gate, and it directs the user to take HP 19 Tie Road to meet with the intersection of Onion Peak Road/Hug Point Road. Note that before you get to to HP 19, there is also an HP 18, so make sure you take the right road. There is another gate at the start of HP 19 Road. The rest of the way is fairly easy to follow, with the exception of a fork about halfway up HP 19. To the right, the road is marked as "HP 19 G," and to the left is currently unmarked. Go LEFT (uphill). When you reach the intersection of Hug Point Road and Onion Peak road, the rest of the route is same as previously reported.
