Route Climbed: SW side Date Climbed: June 27, 2004
After tagging San Jacinto via the Marion Mountain Trail, I took a side trip and bagged nearby Miller Peak (10,400') and Cornell Peak (9750'). I enjoyed the fun class 3 climb up via the west face of Cornell Peak with its final class 4 summit block (which I approached via the SW side). I had to sit on the summit block so I could look down the north (exposed) side of Cornell Peak.
Route Climbed: Southeast Side Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2005
Nice scramble on the third day of a four day SoCal HPS spree with Bob. Cool summit block!
We cheated by taking the tram up, but tried to compensate with a fairly ambitious schedule once we made it up there: first tagging an interesting third class pinnacle SE of Cornell (unnamed, but quite worthwhile), then continuing on to this one, then Miller, San Jacinto, Folly, Drury, Jean, and Marion. Lots of snow and lots of fun.
