Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Jimmy Quan, Bill Simpson, Mike Dillenback

Fun hike for the HPS Waterman Rendezvous up to the summit of the HPS Kratka Ridge, and then west along that ridge to Pk 7190, Pk 7243 to the intersect with the Waterman Mtn Trail. Once on trail we headed up to the summit of Waterman Mtn for the Rendezvous; once on the summit, Jimmy Quan Finished his Lead the List!! Good times!! It was hot out there but beautiful. Hiking along the ridge was mostly on use trail; where that use trail goes vague the route is logical, just follow the ridge line.

We'd set up a shuttle before we started the hike, so we came out via the Waterman Mtn trail. Mileage and gain for entire trip: 7.84 miles with 2,550' gain. Time to the summit was about 4 hours.

24 of us on this trip including:
Me, Tanya, Mike Manning, Jerry Grenard, Serop Karoglanian, Bill Simpson, Lisa Lee, May Tang, Mary Varalyay, Mike Dillenback, Dave Endres, David Cuddy, Tom Connery, Jeremy Kressmann, William Chen, Melani Pipo, Larry Pond, Jimmy Quan, Jane Simpson, Mikki Siegel, Theresa Haley, Aimee Shocket, Louie Hoffman, Ryan Lynch
