Marmaduke70 degrees in January  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2012

Marmaduke

It is a little strange the "community that you drive through (as the sp page states)to get to the TH. But the trail is nice, shaded and worthwhile. Not much of a view though from the summit, to many trees, not even the large boulder at the summit gets you uo high enough to see much.

Solo hike from Whispering Pines. Very friendly people and dogs on the way to trailhead. Steady climb with breezy silence but for grouse calling, quail crossing the path and blue jays chatting. Bagged both summits due to good weather and use of compass. The road that leads south then west from the main summit actually curves/drops into the bowl/saddle then rises again to the west summit. Easy bushwhacking with waist high manzanita. Nice views & isolation atop this county high point.

From a trail out of Cobb. It was a little bewildering because the summit area is heavily forested. You have to do some exploring to find a good view.

Up from Whispering Pines both times. First time made the summit but not the county HP. Had been raining all Christmas 2005 and I decided to go Jan 1 no matter what. Napa was flooding and when we began it was pouring rain, got completely drenched and once on top there was no visibility and began to sleet. Had to turn back.

March 11 went back, great weather and views on the way up, but actually began to snow on me during the return, made the trip through the forest very scenic. Good bit of snow coverage on top.

Very nice day. Parked near the WP gate. The route does get a little vague as you approach the East Summit so be prepared to scout around a bit. Found the register on top of the boulder under the tree. CA P3k 2/46.

Tagged the Sonoma HP too. CA Cohp #8.

After bagging St Helena, came over here to tag Sonoma's high point. The hike up the road through the forest was pretty nice, and the summit of Cobb is a cool place. Took about 15 mins to go over to the West Rim, no problems finding the register. Nice and obscure, just the way I like it. 23rd CA COHP!

Not too much to see on this one. Nice warm spring day. Also tagged the Sonoma County HP. I cleared as much of the trail as possible. There are still lots of downed trees but the road is pretty easy to follow.

From end of Maple Shadow Road from the east. Fun stroll. There was a lot of snow from the night before. 2-4" most of the way with well over a foot on top. Should've brought gloves. 2 hours to the west rim COHP at a leisurely pace.

mpjonesToo steep, not today

Quite a bit steeper than I was expecting, though nothing I couldn't slog through. Made it up to about 4300' when I started to feel like crap, and realized I was dehydrated. I'd been taking plenty of water breaks, but as it was so chilly out I was only drinking enough to wet my throat. I stopped to drink and rest, but as soon as I stopped moving I felt my temp start to plummet. When you get an overwhelming urge to lie down and curl up in a fetal position it's generally a Very Bad Thing. Oh, and then my GPS crapped out on me. That sent me packing downhill.

The hike to Cobb was very pleasant. The trip over to the west ridge was an adventure, wish I had a machete with me. Also, make sure you have cash when crossing the bay area bridges, it's a $25 fine if you don't. They don't take plastic

Tagged this on the way to West Rim. Little did I know that I was also picking up a P2K. Watch out for the untrained, unleashed attack dogs at the bottom.

Started from the gate at the end of Pinewood Way on a relatively warm day for Spring. Besides dodging a few downed trees, had relatively little problem finding the way to the summit. Good view to the north, but thats about it, just trees, trees and more trees. The West Rim was another story, which was confusing, it was late in the day so will have to try it again at some point. Coming back down was also a bit of challenge with no distinguishable trail near the top in some places.

Start from the 175-Maple Shadows Rd intersection,Jog up Road to
No Tresp. Gate-easily circumvent,the trail is sometimes not easy to follow,go under a couple fallen trees,eventually do find the East Summit and very shortly after the Middle Summit and Cobb Mtn Peak,where I sign register,The West Summit peaking requires more perseverance,going through some brush but I do get there eventually in under 2 hours-Coming down though have major difficulties though-losing trail within a half mile after descending from the east summit-bushwhack my way all the way down until I finally hit a trail that leads to a private residence, but it is within a 100 yards of Highway 175 so rather luck-still a bit scary.

Took two tries to get to the county highpoint. The first time I was a little too cavalier and missed it by half a mile. Cobb Mtn is easy enough to find, but the West Rim is a bit tricky.

Hiked with pals Jeff and Alex. Started off normal enough but ran into over a foot of snow at the summit. Have to go back and get the Sonoma County high point on the west ridge.
