This was an unplanned side trip from the real hike up the North Backbone of Mt. San Antonio. A road veers before the Guffy Campground leading to the Blue Ridge high point filled with communication towers. I remembered from the topo map that the Frost Benchmark was also nearby. Sean and I parked at the high point and searched around the towers and on the south side of the road looking for Frost without luck. Looking at the GPS track later, it appears Frost was a little further up the road. Lack of preparation showed.
