Ascent Trip Report

This was the last and certainly steepest of the three peaks that we bagged on this outing. Rather than revisit a route we had used on an earlier hike to Chaparral BM we decided to approach the antenna-topped summit from the vicinity of Shandin Hills Middle School. The warmer temperatures made for slow going up the steepest parts of the hill but our perseverance paid off.
