Ascent Trip Report

Followed Dean's track to get to trailhead, then hiked old road up to a meadow and uphill to the saddle between Adams and 8120. On the way up I sidehilled on the right side of hill 7760'; turns out it is easier to stay in the gully. From the saddle headed northeast avoiding the brush to the saddle between the two summits of Adams Peak. From there easy cross country to the west summit where I signed the Sierra Club register, then back down and over to the east summit where I found Andy Martin's register from 2009 all of ladybugs; it had not been signed since then.
