Ascent Trip ReportInadvertent point-to-point hike, as I went to the wrong trailhead. Joined the others at the top, and got a ride back to my car. I thought the route I went up was better. It's an old jeep road to a saddle, then a singletrack starts up the ridge. It gradually becomes difficult to follow / find. After the last gendarme on the ridge, I was in too much hurry to look for it, so I guessed and angled up and rightward on a lesser slope to join another ridge. Thus not certain where the trail is between 3560 & 3700msl.
The SE ridge descent was off-trail down to 3300msl, where it joined an old jeep road. Good clearance SUV needed for this start, whereas any car can get to where I parked.
