Ascent Trip Report

This was the third peak of the day (after Sugg West and Sugg Peak). Most of the group headed back to the trailhead/cars as they had been to Oakzanita Peak before. The trail is in great shape. We made quick work of the ascent to the peak. There is just minor scrambling to find the register. We signed the register and took photos of the views (& benchmark). We head back down to the trail junction before taking the Upper Descanso Trail back to the trailhead.
