Ascent Trip Report

Followed the SC's route 1 directions. Hiked up the road to the PCT, but discovered that one can start hiking from the parking area--go through the gate in the parking area, hike up the truck trail until the PCT crosses the truck trail. Turn right on the PCT and follow the SC's directions to the peak. Hiking up the road to where the PCT crosses the road adds about 1/4 mile and some gain to the hike. Skip that and start hiking up the truck trail instead for a quicker hike. On the return, turn left on the truck trail and take it to the parking area.
