Ascent Trip Report

I did this peak and the high point way too late in the day. It was starting to get dark as I was bushwhacking down the last section. I also should have brought hiking poles and pants because my legs got super scratched up. There are great views from the top but these peaks are reclusive. Very steep in spots and the thick brush makes travel difficult (at least on the route I took). I tried to park on Bernasconi Road but the no parking signs were very clear so I tried a different parking lot off of Ramona Ex.
