Combs Peak

14 December 1969

By: Paul Lipsohn


Leader: Paul Lipsohn

Twenty hold-overs from yesterday's trip plus one new arrival met at the Oak Grove Campground to start our ascent. After a short caravan to a locked gate at the road-head, we moved almost two miles along a dirt road leading to the Lost Valley Scout Camp. We entered an unnamed wash southwest of the peak, and by following it and the adjoining ridge, attained the summit by noon. The magnificent weather of the preceding day continued, and we again enjoyed an exceptional view. Retracing our route (almost), we reached the cars about 4:00 p.m. for an early start home. The distance covered via this new route was about 12 miles, with 2,400 feet of gain. Many thanks to Bob Herlihy, Hal Paulson, Heddy, Pete, and Ray Redheffer for their help in cutting brush and making this route possible.
