Ascent Trip Report

The location of the wilderness HP may be off here on Peakbagger. The northern point where I left a GPS waypoint is certainly higher and seems to be within the boundary of the wilderness area. The spots are a few hundred feet apart, so visit both to be sure. Extra logged gain is from where we regained the main trail up to camp at Panamint City, so a total of our day 1 ascent. Keith built a summit cairn to hold the register that we left there. Pics from the whole weekend of peaks.
