Ascent Trip Report

Did a loop from Exit 38 trailhead. Climbed the road/trail to Dirty Harry, traversed over to Dirtybox, then continued to Mailbox. Came down the little used and sometimes hard to follow trail on the south side of Mailbox that leads to the Fire Training Academy. We had stashed bikes just outside the gate there which allowed us a quick 15 minute ride down to the trailhead, mostly coasting. The cliff just to the west of Dirty Harry took some time to find a reasonable way down (used a light rope as a hand line), and we got cliffed out in minor ways several times trying to follow the ridge west. Most of the time we traversed 100 to 200 feet below the ridge.
