Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the glider port. hiked down to the beach via main trail. Continued down the beach until just shy of the Scripps pier. half the group didn't want to wade in the water around the short section of rocks as the tide wasn't out far enough (for them) at 9am. returned up the beach. ascended up to La Jolla Farms. hiked the street (north) until reaching the 'ho cee min trail. Took the trail down then back up the ridge which has the benchmark. Reference marker easy to spot and beat up. Look about 15 feet east (away from the water) to find the semi-hidden but great condition benchmark. Returned to the car. celebrated the hike with good company, food, and watched the para-gliders & hang-gliders.
