From PCT  Sucess!

4th and last summit of the day after coming up from Cedars Spring Trail. Nice scramble to get to the top after leaving the PCT, but it was disappointing to find views blocked by trees in all directions except S and SE. No summit register either. Booked it back to the TH without any regrets.

Cedar Springs Trail  Sucess!

Disappointing views from this brushy summit after Pyramid and Lion earlier in the day. Kind of fun climbing over the fallen logs and rocks up the NE ridge on the way up from the PCT though.

5 HPS Day  Sucess!

Second peak of the day along the Desert Divide. Lots of downed trees made the ascent closer to Class 3, but still enjoyable. Off to Pine Mountain...

No Lions, No Tigers, No Bears  Sucess!

...but there was lots of beautiful frozen virgin snow to trapse across! Love breakin' trail on the Desert Divide! Ascent was simple except the fallen tree limbo act in the forest; I actually had to contemplate what to do in the event I fell victim to toppling timbers....I ran!
Brought snow shoes but never wore them; snow was frozen until early afternoon and by then I was too lazy to put them on. Appears to be about a new foot of snow since last 7000' anyway.
