Ascent Trip ReportKeith, Kelley and I did a loop trip to Mount Tule, Groan Benchmark and Gasp Benchmark, all San Diego Sierra Club listed peak, and went over Rozzie Mountain along the way. The climb was 10.9 miles and about 4,900'gain and took 10 hours, 40 minutes. The route finding is a little tricky between Rozzie Mountain and Groan Benchmark because you can easily drop down the wrong ridge. We started near the Sacatone Overlook at 4,000' in elevation. Also, Gasp Benchmark did not have a register.
