Ascent Trip Report***Sierra Club - HPS***
My I-provisional dayhike. Route up and down was the same as that we scouted on the previous weekend. 14 people (including myself) on this hike. All went well, significantly slower (as expected) on this hike than on scout (5.5 hours up vs. 3.5 hrs on scout, 4.0 hrs back vs. 2.5 hrs on scout).
Scout with the Peter and Ignacia Doggett on March 19, 2011 for my upcoming I Provisional dayhike. Route is rugged cross country along seldom ducked, sometimes visible use trail. High class 2 through rocky ridges along a couple of sections.
