Glad I came up from Dawson...had the PCT to myself both ways - only had to endure the crowds at the summit.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

Long, tough hike from the saddle, with my little eight-year-old son. In 95 degree heat, no less! We slept on the summit. I'll never return to this summit; if I did I'd sit down and cry my eyes out, thinking of that eight-year-old...who is now a big, tough high-school kid, who doesn't like to hike.

First time was on a windy day, with intense views of the Yorba Linda fires. Second time was with my nagging cousin. Overall, an awesome hike to go on.

Date Climbed: May 24, 2008


The church I attend annual Men's Retreat is held in Wrightwood. Every year on the Saturday afternoon, I do a B/P summit day hike this year got 4 of the other guys to join for their first ascent of the peak. Lots of snow! Talked to 8 people doing the PCT (different groups).

Great time and perfect day. Snow was deep! Just wish the road wasn't closed 2.5 miles before the trailhead.

wyopeakMikenight view  Sucess!


Back in the eighties, when I still lived in California, I had fond memories of BP. On three different occasions, I sat on the summit, in perfect summer conditions, and watched the sunset. When is started to clear, right before twilight, you could see Mt Whitney clearly to the north. When the sun went down, the view of the LA basin at night was very spectacular. All of the lights were amazing from almost 10,000 feet. I remember you could tell where the coastline was, by the lights. A truly inspirational experience.

Uneventful dayhike from SR2. Small storm from previous night left a trace of snow at the higher elevations.

jsh13Great Summer hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008


This is a nice place to be in the hot weather, since going up the North side means you are in the shade for most of the trip. The views from the ridge just before the summit are outstanding.

truthtrekkerFirst Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


Hey this was a great hike. This was the first summit for me and my wife. We had nine hikers with us. One very experianced hiker who happened to be dealing with a shoulder injury, one hiker between intermediate to advanced and 6 intermediate hikers. Though me and my wife just made our first summit we have been hiking for some time. This was a great experiance. I will be going up this winter for some ice training. Hope to do Langley next year.
