Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I decided to climb this peak as a backpack because of the 200 mile and 6 hour drive required for us to get to the trailhead located outside Santa Barbara. From the trailhead, we backpacked in about 3 miles, then set up camp next to a dry streambed. I had to go back about .25 miles to find water, which was barely flowing. We used the Steri-Pen 3 times on each liter because the water did not look that good. The next day, we climbed the remaining 5 miles to the peak, then went out 8 miles back to the car. Also, we climbed Peak 3571 and Peak 4152 on the way up to Hildreth Peak and trip stats include ascents of all 3 peaks.
