Ascent Trip Report

Assisted Mars Bonfire on HPS hike. Goal was Cedar, Birch and Allen Peaks. Started from Forest Falls on Aqueduct Trail; joined Truck Trail up to Allen Saddle, up Yucaipa Ridge Truck Trail, then (~6200' elevation) up Oak Glen Trail. At ~7120' I decided to turn back, due to heat and feeling of nausea.
Group continued and bagged all three peaks.

Before starting down I climbed the outcropping at ~7200'.
Total rt gain was 4100', due to ups and downs on Aqueduct Trail.
