Ascent Trip ReportWhat a beautiful November day! I hope the weather can stay this way for another month and make up for the lost June we had in the Sierras.
I attempted the triple last year but ran out of daylight after a later start than expected. Decided to finish it today. Nice and quick burner hike to start the day. It’s all up hill to the ridge line and gains a lot of elevation in a short time. This can still be done fairly quickly and would make a great hike to add on with another peak in the area when the daylight hours are longer.
The views at the summit stretched from Mt. Diablo to Arc Dome. Those are 130 miles away in each direction. The view of the Carson Valley is phenomenal.
The dirt road into the trail start is not too bad. I wouldn’t take a Prius or small sedan up there since there are a few rocks or holes that require higher clearance, but all in all, very easy drive. It does take about 20 minutes to drive from Highway 89 to the end of the road.
