Ascent Trip Report

Day hike from S-22 with Greg Gerlach. A long day, but still one of my favorite DPS peaks. Note: we came in to where we camped for the night in the dark, right across the street from the TH. We left in the dark the next morning and got back well after dark, only to find citations on our vehicles. We were about 20' within some boundary and were unaware of it until we saw the tickets. I measured the distance in the morning and it wasn't much. We just didn't see it in the dark. So beware if you car camp here.
