Took the Sid Davis XC both up and down. Swung too far to the north and end up postholing through fresh snow on the ridgeline.

Little tough finding the correct route but fun climbing when got there. Scary to stand on peak when the wind gusts.

Fun scrambling up to the summit block. My first experience with 4th class rock and it wasn't too bad. With Miller, San J, Folly, Drury, Jean, and Marion.

Bryan and I climbed 6 peaks even though there was a foot of fresh powder. Cornell was the first followed by Miller, San Jacinto, Folly, Newton Drury, and Jean. The summit rocks were icy. I scrambled up as high as I could safely. I stood up and my head was two feet lower than the highest rock. I'm still counting it.

I took the tram in the late eighties, it was a lot cheaper then, but it did not rotate. I hiked and scrambled up Cornell, what a cool peak, then hiked up to San Jack and returned to the tram. A fun day for some awesome peaks with the help of the tram.

Alex WoodRe: 'Should have had ropes for that'

Alex Wood

On saw on the Mt. San Jacinto Message Board that someone set up something by throwing some webbing around the little horn and then easing out. Still wouldn't have done much but at least the fall would be less.

Hmmm, interesting. I dont know anyone who used roped techniques for that thing. Rangers...they mean well guys...they really do ;)

Climbed it coming from Yale peak, and then Harvard. A fun climb, and great views from the summit! The next time I went up there, the ranger told us that you "should have ropes for that". Hmmm. I survived!

Great hike!

Fun climb/scrabble up the side of the peak. The last 20ft or so was a little nerve racking but all hold felt good and strong and easily supported my 280lb frame. The East side of the peak had 20ft visibility and the west side had 20 miles. Very cool cloud barrier.

Took a run up this after getting to camp in Tamarack with the family and friends. Scrambled up with Melody Wong (look in your old Stoney Point guidebook). It took a couple of tries before I found the way up the slightly overhung west side of the summit block. It's only about 5.6, but geez, what a landing! Much easier down the south ridge.

along with Miller, San Jacinto and Jean. Cornell was the best climb by far, mostly 3rd class with a nice summit block. Met a few other guys up there. Good time!! Ran into a rattlesnake on the way back, it must be that season.

Climbed up from the tram with Gene Merewether. The last part of the cat walk was a little sketchy so we opted out of doing that. We also tagged Yale and Harvard Peaks along the way. Very warm day and post holed the whole way.
