Ascent Trip Report

From Lake Isabella we drove via Wofford Heights and CA 155 to Greenhorn Summit, then north approx. 6.6 miles on the unpaved Portuguese Pass Rd (FSR 24S15)to the Sunday Peak TH. At the saddle 0.7 miles from the TH, we left the peaceful, woodland trail and headed XC for about 0.3 mile through very dense chinquapin to Portuguese Peak. The location of the summit was not obvious, but after checking out a couple of rocky outcrops, Pete and I agreed on the highest one in the immediate vicinity. He left a register can and book
