|Ascent Type:||Unsuccessful - Turned Back|
| Elevation:||4300 ft / 1310 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHPS route 1 out of Caliente Hot Springs. Gate closed so added another ~40 minutes for the extra ~2+ miles to get to TH at the springs. Above average temps were my downfall for the day. Turned around at 9.49 miles on GPS, so yup was close, just too hot for me. Reported 86 deg at 3pm, with very intermittent light breezes. Creeks had some flowing water which were gratefully welcomed after getting cooked on the ridge. Trail is fairly clear to follow, just pay extra attention to the # of creek crossings. Encountered a fiesty little rattlesnake in the canyon, as well as several ticks throughout the day.
