Ascent Trip ReportHiked to Tule first and then drove between Tule TH and Gasp/Groan TH on a very rough 4WD "Trail". Parked N of Redondo Flat adjacent to the ridge trail indicated on the map. We hiked out and back via Gasp. 6.7 Miles, 3000 feet gain approx and 8 hours. Rain did not materialize as predicted, but very high winds (40 to 50MPH ?) slowed our progress. We managed to stay on the downwind side of the ridges for much of the hike, but that meant missing some use trails that we crossed over.
