    Amazing trail for only being 2.5 hours from DTLA.
    My GPS gave up ~3 miles to the end on my recording below, but if you take the shortcut both ways it seems like it is only ~18.5 miles.

    Trailhead to pass: A slog, scenery similar to hikes in the San Gabriels.
    Pass to PCT Junction: A nice segway going through an alpine meadow.
    (Optional) Shortcut from PCT Junction trail to PCT (This is a "trail" I saw marked on USGS map on caltopo. It follows a stream and then disappears but knocks off around 1.5 miles one way and some elevation gain/loss. View my recording below.)
    PCT: Endless views to the west over the Golden Trout Wilderness.
    PCT to summit: No trail, easy route find through a rocky forested section opening up to a long Class 2/3 boulder field. I approached the summit block from the south and got stuck at a section right below where it was Class 4 and gave up as I was too tired to re-approach. Recommend approaching from the west / northwest.

    Water source:
    Stream at shortcut junction and also along PCT.

    Up Route 1 (South ridge) was great, nice assortment of terrain, lots of wildflowers, no significant brushiness. Lucked out on an overcast day so the exposure was not an issue, highly recommended.

    Down Route 2 (East ridge with tunnels at end) trail extremely overgrown with full body height brush and whitethorn. Hard to follow at times due to denseness of brush. Also sandy steep terrain at bottom that seemed extra loose maybe due to the wet winter. Do not recommend.

    Caltopo map ID for all routes: 100J (Just google caltopo 100J)
