Ascent Trip Report

Peak 3 of 7 today.

After Cheaha, made my way over to the Hernandez's and McDill. I parked on the side of the road and bushwhacked my way up to the trail rather than hike the trail all the way in. The climb up was steep and I had to navigate through the cliffs at the top. Hit Hernandez, then over to the southwest peak, then over to McDill. After getting all 3 peaks, traversed back down to the road from the saddle which avoided all the cliffs.
