Ascent Trip Report

I used the Pine Creek Campground for the trail head due to the poor road conditions in Meadow Canyon. A good trail (11 miles out and back) leads to the talus slope and a saddle just below the south summit. After a short scramble the summit is reached with spectacular views in all directions especially Table Mountain to the east..
Nice hike on a beautiful day.
