Surprise rain after an easy drive up from Bakersfield. Hit the high points, then hobbled out with a bad ankle sprain
Lots of driving with Kiwi the Dog hitting Breckenridge, the three Piute Summits, and the Bright Star Wilderness H.P.
According to my GPS, the western summit is higher than the middle summit by 5-6ft, and higher than the eastern summit by 15-17ft - in case anybody cares. Trip Report
Well, almost a driveup. A very long drive stright onto the saddle between the middle and eastern summits. Only a few minutes walk to visit both. Was a battle getting out and over to Breckenridge, in part due to a gate on the route I chose to go. Luckily I ran into a friendly landowner who opened it for me and I was on my way.
Dayhiked/drove a bunch of S Sierra peaks this day.
Bagged along with Breckenridge. Mostly driving.
A fun, somewhat arduous drive, some easy short hiking, some scrambling, and a bear for variety! Fun peak, not too much trouble, but still worth the effort.
