Ascent Trip ReportThe trick was to get onto the powerline road but we found a dirt track behind a school leading to that powerline road. We followed it south for 2 miles and then turned east onto a dirt road lead straight to the peak. We drove 0.5 miles on that road when we came to a fence marking the boundary of the Sierra Estrella Regional Park. The roads were generally good for any stock SUV but in dry conditions (I had rained a couple of days before we did it) some spots would be very soft sand and likely require 4WD. We hiked the road for another 3.2 miles when it ended where the main wash hugs a smaller hill. We dropped into the wash and followed it until we picked up a prominent ridgeline. The ridge was very rocky and had many rock outcroppings we had to climb over or around requiring sustained scrambling. For our descent we picked a drainage NW of the peak which was initially steep, lose and brushy but nothing unusual. Eventually we dropped into the main wash which had a few dry falls to climb through or around but nothing that was really class 3. I personally think the drainage was the better route. We did not find any summit cairn or register. I placed a small register in a ziplock bag tucked under a rock near the summit rock. If anybody goes there please bring a jar.
