Ascent Trip ReportIcehouse Canyon Trail to the saddle and follow the sign and trail to Ontario Peak. At Kelly Camp, head uphill (South) and stay on the obvious trail. Kelly Camp to the ridge is probably the hardest; steep, sunny, and no breeze. Once you reach the ridge multiple places on the trail are overgrown with manzanita bush, so watch your legs. At mile 5 you can see a good portion of the last 1.3 miles; open, sunny, and breezy. It wasnt a super hot day but bring extra water and food, this trail will take it out of you.
