Ascent Trip Report

With our turnaround time approaching and discouraged by the bushwhacking still to come, we turned back short of the summit. There was grumbling and second-guessing. But while hiking back up to the top of the ridge, we stumbled, unexpectedly, on a metal 35mm film canister in a pile of rocks just below Point 7042 at 35.633 N/118.045 W containing a few slips of paper signed by Andy Smatko. The slips of paper name this point as "Windy Ridge".
