Wanted to climb Glascock since viewing it from Fiske Peak. Began with the North Route. Pullout is just past mile 6 marker. Fire roads very indistinct getting up to Cortina Ridge. Once on the ridge followed fire breaks that also indistinct and showing a lot of new growth. Ended up bushwacking along the ridge not by choice. Then connected to fire roads again. THis route could become more difficult in later years. A lot more wildflowers on the ridgeline than anywhere else on the hike. Happy to encounter an abundance of bees buzzing around. Came down the nameless ridgeline..very steep upper slopes...fantastic views and enjoyed coming down that ridge. Want to find more peaks in this area.

Hiked up from the Cache Creek side bridge with with Dingus and Squishy. Lots of rain and even more mud, great trail though. Summit was intermittent fog, rain and wind. Good day.

Climbed directly up the southwest ridge (see my photo for route information). Once on top, I hiked a few miles down the fire roads just about to Glascock Spring. Returned the same way.

Ascended from the Cache Creek bridge. Descended via Billy's Hill. Wet, muddy and cold, but enjoyable. Had some snow showers when I was on top, then it turned to rain, then snow again. Lots of bear, cougar and deer tracks in the mud of the firebreak in "The Redlands." Saw three deer and a newt near the summit.

To return to my car, I started walking along HWY 16, attempting to hitchhike. After 45 minutes or so, the 25th car picked me up. A younger guy who said he lived in a house that I walked past (there's only 2 houses in the whole stretch...) gave me a ride for the final 2 miles. Nice guy! Thanks, dude!

First peak of the season. Although not a fantastic peak, the area is awesome, and it gave me a chance to get out of the house. It had been raining for the better part of a week and the ground was super muddy. I hope the mountain page encourages other to check this area out.
