From the cross-Cut TH, which was over flowing, over to the usual park based hike to the top of 5024. Super busy. Even 5024 had some people there. Down the east slope descent to the trail on the ridge, which I took for some time until my turn around time. Made it 5.25 miles out on Linda's posted GPS from last year. Even though I didn't return via 5024, I doubled the miles and added 200'. Might be more, but I'll call it good enough.

The views from the ridge are scenic. The hike is a harder one. Definitely harder than a SoMo hike. If you push yourself it can be hard like an Estrella off trail hike. Finished by headlamp. Winter just isn't my season. After the sun set the backlit clouds and Estrella were pretty. The wool I had worn all day and regretted was also no longer a mistake. I'm more comfortable out here in the low 100s.
