W6/SC-323 - Merriam Mountains” from my list. This expedition however was a #FAIL. I had a couple of routes planned, both ran into private property. I went over to the northwest side and did find a trail that I thought might go up and over but it eventually ended and it would have been a very difficult bushwhack. The trail was pretty overgrown anyway. The last possible route, and probably the best said that it was a private road. It may not have been but oh well. I sent an email to a fellow SOTA activator who has activated it several times to see if he has a usable route for me.
I’ll save my energy for Guatay Mountain. It should be a good hike tomorrow.
