Ascent Trip Report

with altitude adjustment hiking club meetup group. from the south fork trail head up to the meadows and split off towards dollar lake and dollar lake saddle. saw significant though easily passable snow from 9,000' and up. several folks carried microspikes but they were never needed. some icy patches were slick in the am but not bad in the afternoon after it warmed up. from dollar lake saddle headed west down the san bernardino peak divide trail just over a mile before heading for a brief scramble south to the summit. we had seven folks in the group and everyone made it up and down safely.
