"I used Route 1 of Sierra Club Peaks HPS for Wysup Peak, starting at Onyx Summit along Hwy 38. I took a very leisurely pace as I was enjoying identifying the plant life along the way. Despite the fact that Wysup Peak is about 550' higher than Onyx Summit, there is considerable up and down in both directions totaling about 1500' gain, but nothing severely steep; not even the ducked use path branching from the PCT up about 1/5 mile up a rocky gully to the minor class 2 scramble to the summit outcrop was very steep either. Botanically, the area runs a transition from a drier form of the Yellow " - Wysup Peak, brianpowell, Jul 30, 2018
"Warm morning, but the hike itself is pretty easy at only 1.4 miles to the top. The volunteer fire spotters at the lookout tower were more than happy to talk about their work and demonstrate the equipment they use." - Vetter Mountain, marc, Jul 28, 2018
"Hiked from the Oaks Restaurant on Highway 38, because I didn't want my car to get dusty on the dirt road. This added an additional 2.8 miles and 300 feet to the hike. This also added a little bit of length to the hike. Hot day out there today, somewhere in the 90's." - Constance Peak, Peak-Conquistador, Jul 28, 2018
"A 3-Peaker day today. Leaving from Dawson Saddle, climbed past Throop to summit Mt Burnham first, then over to Mt Hawkins (then finishing with Throop). The PCT that connects the 3 is super-easy to follow." - Mount Hawkins, marc, Jul 22, 2018
"A 3-Peaker day today. Leaving from Dawson Saddle, climbed past Throop to summit Mt Burnham first, then over to Mt Hawkins and then finishing with Throop Peak. The PCT that connects the 3 is super-easy to follow, but the trail from PCT to the Throop summit, coming from Mt Hawkins can barely be called a trail... just aim for the highest point and climb. The trail to the summit from the Mt Burnham direction is much easier to find/follow." - Throop Peak, marc, Jul 22, 2018
