I've attempted to do this hike something like twenty times. Somehow I always end up on Squaw thinking ahh I'll save 2429 for another day.
Having been through the ringer the past three months working near hundred hour weeks I finally got an unplanned day off! Unfortunately I've turned into a slug and couldn't get motivated to do anything. So as much as I didn't look forward to getting out to this peak I forced myself. I'm glad I did too. It's a great alternative to Squaw. The afternoon crowd was as talkative as the morning crowd at Squaw. Reminded me more of Telegraph Pass as a neighborhood atmosphere as opposed to a city hike.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
