Route was a variation of Greg's route and on his advice we avoided the brushy down climb from 6168 per HPS Route 1. We started out by going up HPS Route 2 to Bare Mtn and signed the register. Back down and across the good ridge firebreak tagging 6103 and 6168. Instead of going down we stayed on the good firebreak over to 6068 and continued down it a short stretch to the PCT from there with no problems or brush at all. This would be a good change to Route 1 since from there it was a easy stroll down the PCT back to the start.
