Ascent Trip Report

With the Great Basin Peak Group of the Sierra Club. Very enjoyable loop hike led by David von Seggern. About 30 miles of dirt roads to reach the starting point - Juniper Spring. Last half mile was very rough. Even with high-clearance vehicles, we had to break out the shovels to re-contour a gully wash.

5 miles; 1,900 feet gain. About 4 hours
