A lot of bushwhacking for not much view. Brush is thick and green.
I did this as part of a loop which also included Little Stonewall, Stonewall, Arrowmakers Ridge, Japacha, and Cuyamaca. This is definitely one of the more boring areas I've explored in southern California.
The brush is gone! At least between the summit and the high point of the road.
A whole bunch of HPS peaks in the Laguna Mtns/Cuyamaca area. Trip Report.
Postholed all the way from the bottom up the fire road and was pretty tired by the top after climbing Stonewall & Cuyamaca in the snow too. NavySeabee has it exactly right - "strictly a check the box summit." The bushwhack in deep snow after the leaving the road was absolutely brutal and not fun at all.
Looped with Cuyamaca for an easy day, my gf at the time wasn't too happy I had to make the bushwack to the actual summit!
Combo'd with Oakzanita and my arm in a sling. Made the brushy summit approach more interesting. Sadly, there are no views making this strictly a 'check the box' summit.
