|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5633 ft / 1716 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFollowed Mike Sullivan's GPS track much closer and this time make it to the top. I veered off a little to scramble around on the boulders and that cost some extra time on the way up. Overall time was about an hour longer than the track.
At the top, there were pockets of water in the rock boulders that were frozen over. Not expected for a Southern California hike in the desert, but it was the middle of December. Didn't stay too long at the top. Had lunch on the way down, a couple hundred meters from the top, while taking in the magnificent panoramic views, much warmer...
All in all a terrific hike!
