mcphersonm80Good Ol BP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2011


Third time up BP, one of my favorite peaks boasting my favorite view:

The View Baldy Complex

7/9/2011 - Hiked up from Windy Gap, perfect weather, could rest on this summit for days.

1/15/2011 - Snow climb, deep crunchy snow. Followed the standard trail from Vincent Gap for 3 or 4 switchbacks then abandoned it and headed straight up the north face. Icy towards top. Pics here: Baden-Powell Winter Climb | Flickr

11/14/2010 - First ascent, via Vincent Gap, cold gusty conditions.

Snowshoed the northface of Mt Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap. Made the summit under very windy conditions, but afforded beautiful views north into the Antelope Valley and West to the Pacific Ocean.

HaddadbFaster down than up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 17, 2011


The mountain is still covered in snow and ice, which gave us a great excuse to practice some mountaineering. We ignored the trail and went straight up a a couloir. It took 5 1/2 hours to slog our way straight up to the summit, and 20 minutes to glissade down. What a rush!

Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2011
Road clear to Vincent Gap but watch out for the rocks in the road. Snow all the way to the bottom of the mountain. Got about 1/3 of the way up on snowshoes before running out of time. Beautiful day but hard to keep on the trail and the slope was tough on the snowshoes.

Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2011


The best powder day I've ever seen on SoCal. The road to Vincent Gap so we had to hike in a couple miles on a snow covered road. Broke fresh snow all the way to the summit.

Iron HikerMy introduction to the San Gabriels  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2009

Iron Hiker

First peak in the San Gabriels for me, did this from Dawson Saddle not long after ACH opened in its entirety for the first time in years. Very interesting weather, with thunder in the distance and small pellets of hail showering on me! Nevertheless, the views were still excellent and it was a great introduction to the San Gabes for me.

Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2010


I hiked the PCT as part of our Transcontinental Triathlon and summited Baden Powell along the way. Bad weather with no view, but it feels so good to be at a summit for a change.

Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2010


Did this hike with Chris to celebrate his return from a second tour in Afghanistan. Two and a half days of hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains was fun. A glider flew right above the summit several times and then the pilot waved at us.

Did the 3-Niner romp from Dawson Saddle. Very pleasant hike through forest and the best summit of the day for sure. Also tacked on Mount Lewis for a 4 HPS day.
