Ascent Trip Report

Original report on LOJ

Nine Friday Fanatics checked in at Los Coyotes at 9am for a couple of hikes - $10/vehicle. We drove in and parked on San Ignacio Rd for a 1-mi hike to spot 5764 with recently discovered BM Boulder. Then we drove further down the road to a gate for a hike to prom 5860. Went up the road for a mile looking for a route up from the southwest. Took a short detour to unsuccessfully look for section mark 13NW. Four of us started up & encountered heavy brush. Markie turned back and found a better route to the east, arriving on the summit 20 min before we did. Impressive climbable summit block with another Mission Indian Agency benchmark on top (SIVA). We took Mark's route down - steep, still brushy but not as bad.
