Ascent Trip Report

Originally had planned to do Grapevine, but after arriving at our preferred start, we felt and saw some non-ideal weather. We looked over toward Whale and saw nothing but blue skies, so we decided to go for the better bet, and headed for the the North approach up Whale. Even though Whale is on the higher side in Anza, there is a full-on trail for the entirety. We were thankful for the much needed mental break. Truly enjoyed the hike up. I might take some people up here again next month, so I'm glad I was able to pre-scout. We did need a high clearance to get to the start of the trail. At the time we went, a 4x4 was not necessary.
