Lone Mountain was another peak I'd seen on a number of occasions and after my Sheep Mesa hike it seemed like the thing to do. I parked in the widest spot along FR1096 just adjacent to the peak and set off uphill. Boy was this one steep... 480 feet in elevation gain in less than .3 mile... my Achilles were begging for mercy well before the top.

I didn't follow the most direct route up because it looked too steep, meandering to the left a bit until the rocky area near the end when I headed straight for the summit. On the way down I figured I'd take the most direct route, which worked out pretty well.

No summit log and I didn't have another one to leave so I guess I'll be back soon.
Photos coming soon.
