Ascent Trip Report

hit shields and anderson via the forsee creek trail with the socal altitude adjustment hiking club meetup group. headed up the forsee creek trail, hit some light snow around 8,000' nothing too serious. took the trail junction east towards shields. shields is a rocky scramble (very light class two, if that) to the summit. took some pix and headed down to anderson. even though it is not much higher, there is more tree cover on anderson, so we had more shade and much more snow. we ate lunch on anderson, and then went straight north xc down to the trail fork on the forsee creek trail and headed out the way we came. another great day in the sgwa.
