Ascent Trip Report

Dry Canyon Road was open but in rough shape with many washed out sections and minor rock slides, but still passable with 4WD. Shelly drove to a turnaround area near the summit and we went up from there. Bagged the lookout tower (also in rough shape), then over to the summit proper of Cuyama Peak, and YAM Benchmark. YAM Station mark has likely slid off the steep North side of the peak. We did find YAM reference mark no. 2 intact but could not find reference mark no. 1. Outstanding views from this P1K summit.
