Beware!
Many people don't know that poison oak grows this high up, but it does. Part way up the hill on the approach trail, you will encounter it growing low to the ground(ankle biters). It peaks around the base of Manana then disappears along the rest of the cliff. Nov 30, 2009

If you're trying to conserve gas, the base of Manana et al is only about a 25 min walk from Camp 4. May 7, 2015
