All you So Cal boyz. I called the ranger station and checked on access to Main Divide over Saddle Back. The Official word is all gates are open. I am planning on getting up there and revisiting the location of my demise. I have to conquer the hill that left me stranded, now that I am back and better than ever. I will probalby head up there on the 20th with some friends from work if you want to join along. One note. It is National Forest and we have to really Tread lightly up there.
