Ascent Trip ReportPlease see below GPX Data and some Pictures of the Hike.
After Parking my Car on the side of Jubilee Road I made my way across the Desert looking at a Wash which I figured would work to get over the initial range, oh well upon coming closer it looked more hassle than it was worth I and abandoned the idea and kept going. After a little bit side hilling I found something easier to get on top of the first range and dropped down into the wash. That was easy enough. Straight ahead in the direction of Longridge Peak I saw another Wash, which would get me up and onto a direct Line of the Summit. Since I had no other information and it looked good as far as I could see from below I worked my way up. Some Dry-falls with light brush was not much of a hindrance to keep moving upwards. A few sections required Class 2 to 3 Scrambling and others could be worked around. Pleased with my route and decision so far. Pretty much a straight Line from my Car up to the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline itself is long but not difficult, a bit up and down till reaching the Summit with amazing views. A Register can be found. On my way back I decided to stay on the Ridge a little longer and drop down a Slope and walk out the wash. This was even easier than my ascent Wash. I stayed in this wash and walked around instead of re-climbing my ascent route. To sum it all up. I am Happy with the chosen Route. Shorter and Interesting with some Scrambling on my ascent, and Longer but easier on my descent.
Happy Hiking, Josef
