Report

I parked at an empty site at Pine Springs Campground and followed the road a short distance.
Following some tracks, I hopped over this fence and headed cross-country toward the eastern spur ridge of San Guillermo Mountain.
Dropping into a dry creek bed on the left.
Exiting the creek after about a tenth of a mile at this cairn.
Starting up the spur ridge. More cairns mark the way.
View back toward the campground.
San Guillermo Mountain comes into view on the right.
Another look back.
The spur ridge tops out on this minor summit.
True summit of San Guillermo Mountain lies a quarter mile to the north.
Almost at the true summit, looking back.
