Ascent Trip Report

0900hrs:Started out of Del Valle (Lichen Bark-750ft)and made good time to Rose Peak in just under 4hrs. Original plan was to hit ALCO High Point in same trip, but after considering turning around at N. Fork Indian Creek, decided finishing Rose Peak (3817ft) would have to do. Signed register at 1319hrs and snapped two quick pictures before retreating from the peak due to extreemly high winds. Returned to Jeep at 1704hrs. 20+ miles on the day. Notes: Saw bobcat near Sycamore Flat, beautiful sunset on drive out!

Additional millage: Thursday did 4.88 miles to insignificant peak (1360ft) in Dublin Hills Regional Park.
