Ascent Trip Report

I parked near mile marker 71 on Angeles Crest, following HPS route 3. The use trail was obvious at the beginning, but I lost it soon after and it was mostly a cross-country hike, chasing wisps of use trails up the slope until I bumped into the PCT. The summit was less-than-spectacular, but I do appreciate looking at the ridgeline from Hawkins to Baden-Powell and knowing all the peaks, so there's that. I would still like to do a one-way trip along that stretch of PCT and get all the peaks along the way, but probably not unless I'm helping someone else finish the list.
