Nick TurturaToo much to bear  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2012

I went up with my three kids, 7,5,and 5 years in age. As we summited my son bent over to get the register and as he did so I saw a bear 15 yards beyond us. Needless to say we didn't sign anything that day. I grabbed the kids and slowly walked away while singing our favorite songs, very loudly. My kids didn't even see the thing and I wanted their first sighting to be a good experience (from a little further away.) So I didn't tell them anything. On the way down my son told my daughters "dad needs to go to the bathroom real bad. That's why we left too quick to sign the register." He was kinda right.

I started with King Mountain, Grayback near Glendale, then over to Bolivar, and around through Agness to pick off Brandy. It was a lot of backcountry driving on very windy roads but I met with success at all four peaks.

I was trying to wedge this CoHP in-between Mount Bolivar and Grayback Mountain, so I jogged up & down Brandy Peak to save time (30m up, 12m down). Unfortunately, I was was in such a hurry that it also caused me to forget to sign the register. I was not thinking straight, after driving many hours from Washington with virtually no sleep. Fortunately, my quick trips at Bolivar and Brandy did allow enough time to get to Grayback during daylight hours.

Doh. I was stopped by a single lingering snow drift and forced to walk 3 miles to get to the TH. Then up to the peak. Then back. Pleasant hike other than the bonus roadwalk.

While driving through from CA to WA, I decided to give Brandy a try. I left my trailer in Grants Pass and headed up the Bear Camp Road. Weather was lousy with wind gusting to 40 and the snowline around 5 to 6,000. Made it to the TH with just some minor snow patches on fs 2308. Couple of inches of snow on the summit. Wind blowing too hard. I didn't try to open the register.

Got back to the 3,500 foot level on the road out and found that the BLM had locked the gate on me. Drove the Peavine Road out.
OR Cohp 15/36, OR P3k 3/22.

Hiked up the ridge trail until the GPS said we were close to te summit, then bushwacked to the top. I'm easy to please, but this one isn't worth it unless your into CHP or prominence peaks

I set out to tag this summit on a great fall day with good visibility in all directions. The main road, Forest Road #23, was undergoing some construction so I had to take a long detour up the "Peavine Grade" to get there. Very scenic and incredibly remote. I found a trailhead that got me to within a quarter mile of the summit and then went cross-country the rest of the way.

I hiked this one in the snow. It was foggy, cold, and wet. This was my 2nd CoHP that I intentionally went out to hike. I did Bolivar Mtn this same day.

See Dean's entry below. Fortunately the following day was gorgeous as we completed our three-county-highpoint swing through SW Oregon on a positive note on Grayback Mountain.

Bob Bolton and I had climbed nearby Mt. Bolivar earlier in the day and made our way around to Brandy Peak by taking road 23 up from the Rogue River. We used our map and GPS to figure out the best place to park on FS 2308 and then just hiked up in the rain on slippery vegetation to our second rainy summit of the day. No views. The James Kim tragedy made me remember the area and reminded me that mountains are not places to be unprepared in bad weather. My condolences and sympathy go out to the Kim family for the terrible loss they suffered.
