|10, 834 ft|
I started at 8,850 ft....so maybe that doesn't count as a summit ... but it was still a good hike!
From Wellman's Divide I went through a rocky pass and then over some long switchbacks to where the above photo was taken.

This hike was amazing though and I highly recommend it to anyone in so cal. The scenery changed with every mile and it was strenuous, but not extreme. Regardless the hike itself being great, the views from the peak made it well worth it. One side descends to the desert and the other sides into California forests and wine country. This solo six hour journey was just what my soul needed after a 74 hour week at the front desk!
