T. WhiteMy first San Gabriel high peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2009

T. White

Took the Dawson Saddle route... much fewer people *and* switchbacks. True to the namesake, saw a large Boy Scout troop on the summit. Could see all the way to the Panamint Range from the top, but was not as impressed as I'd expected by the rest of the views. Maybe it was the carnival atmosphere at the top.

boisedoca little snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2017


pretty fun peak. still had a fair amount of snow above 8500ft. used crampons for a bit. The lower part of this mountain is pretty steep and climbing it in full winter conditions would be a challenge

Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2016
It was a very cold day out and the switchbacks were pretty hard to make out, but we ended up making it to the top. Need to keep an eye on the ice levels when I hike it again next winter as it was a bit slicker than I had anticipated.

Date Climbed: Nov 15, 2016


Long day hike from Crystal lake. Didn't run into any other hikers on the way there or back, just a couple others at the summit. Nice to get this one checked off the list

A winter ascent, which is a great way of avoiding crowds and finding a little adventure.

gimpilator9 Peak Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2014


Heather and I parked below Windy Gap at 7am and then hiked up Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, and Islip. We got back to the car at 2pm and then drove around hiking up Akawie, Winston, and Lewis. The next day we did both summits of Twin Peaks as well as Waterman.

StartingOverBeautiful Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2014


The views from the top were probably some of the best in Southern California. (I say probably because this is the highest peak I've climbed thus far; no Baldy or Old Greyback.)

ScottWhitneyBoundMt. Islip to Mt. Baden-Powell 6 Peak Traverse  Sucess!

Three of us hiked from Dawson Saddle to Vincent Gap, bagging six peaks along the way ending with Baden-Powell, with a car shuttle back to Dawson Saddle.

LeftenantDanGreat Little Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2014


5th Annual Father's Day weekend hike with my daughter. After doing Baldy and Telegraph in prior years we gave B-P a try. Short, just 8+ miles R/T, moderate elevation gain, well maintained trail, great views, not crowded until the way down (as we passed the Boy Scout pilgrimage and the bus full of Korean hikers), goldilocks weather on top- not too cold, not too hot- enjoyable morning and back to the car by 10:00 am.

PastorronSo much fun in snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2012


One of the best hiking days of the year for our group of friends. The hike had it all - great weather, enough snow to need an ice-ax, enough ice to need crampons and great views. Very slow going down. Will do again in the future.

Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2013


Stayed on PCT until reaching large snow-covered sections, then roped up for practice and went straight up the north ridge to summit.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013


Stayed the night atop Baden Powell and watched the Supermoon rise above Mount Baldy! Got some gorgeous shots of the Wally Tree at sunset with the moon behind. Wow, what a place.
