Took Greg's advice and went up the power line access road to avoid the initial brushy gully in HPS Route 3. Shelly was able to easily drive her jeep up the road to the saddle at 4320' where the use trail starts. Then up the steep use trail to the summit. Station mark and Reference No.1 were missing but we found Reference No. 2 on a rock pointed the wrong way. So I turned the rock around to point the correct direction. Slow going for us on our 7th peak of the weekend. Rewarded with yummy dinner at Dona Maria in La Canada Flintridge, we recommend!
