Been doing some quick hikes in Cuyamaca / Laguna area, not much but some pretty scenery right now out there. Thought I would share a few pics.

Nice looking trip Daren. Is that lone-hiker?

Nice! I wanted to hit Chariot from the east the times I was by it but it looked like a bush whack to the top. How was it going up?

Also looks like you utilized the Lassator Hay shortcut form the fire road to the PCT. How was that?

A little brushy, not bad compared to other trips. From a distance it looked like a good path, up close we lost it and could see faint signs of a zig zag trail but we just went vertical and crossed the zig zag every 50' or so.

Nice TR, Daren. Your trail register pic shows an entry listed in Peakbagger.com and that guy is apparently a pretty badass peakbagger: https://www.peakbagger.com/climber/climber.aspx?cid=711

You get a good view of the Lassater Hay Road just below the summit?

I didn't take any pics from the top...upset

It was the usual dry, hot, dusty PCT Oct experience. Gary and I just poked around with no real agenda and did not know we climbed Chariot Mtn, just followed some old looking game trail and at the top was a pile of odd looking rocks so Gary disassembled them and there was a register...like magic...Thumbs Up


Here is another of what I think is probably the original register book, old dot matrix paper stapled into a small booklet

Dot matrix paper-perfect for a 1995 register! smile

It's supposed to be cooler this weekend-I may have to check the peak out.
