Web Mountain via Dirty Harry's road-trail

We parked at the trailhead for Dirty Harry's Peak, on the north side of Exit 38, and headed up the paved road that leads to a fire training area. After less than a mile we headed right up Dirty Harry's road-trail. Around 3,500' the trail fork at the bottom of a talus field, the route to Dirty Harry's Peak goes left and our route was straight ahead. The trail countoured below the talus field as it headed ENE toward a small tarn at 4,353', Greentrails maps show this trail to the tarn.

From the tarn we followed a flagged path ESE up the basin that is west of Web Mountain. Because of snow on the north side of the ridge, we stayed in the basin instead of taking the ridge and ascended on a talus field to the summit.

This was a surprisingly brush-free and aesthetic route. For an after-hours trip it was fairly ambitious, we got back to the cars at 11:30 PM.
