Ascent Trip ReportStaring at Ryan's Campground I did a circuit including Peak 5194, Ryan's Mountain, Peak 5238 and Joshua Benchmark. It made for a fun hike, some scrambling on loose rock. I started on the trail south of the campground, turned left to start up a valley to the saddle where I bagged 5194, turning around I hit Ryan's, then I followed the trail down for a half mile and turned right to get 5238, then walked towards Joshua BM. The scramble down from Joshua BM was 3rd class, but there may be easier decent. The weather was perfect. The views were amazing.
