harborAwesome Winter Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 20, 2014

Parked at the Quarry at the mouth of Craner Canyon and walked the 1.5 miles up the road to the base of the mountain and picked a ridge and went straight up. Fun hike.

The register at the top needs replacing as has been said by others. There wasn't a single entry for 2013. Last signed in May of 2012. This peak sees very few visitors...at least very few that know about the register.

Reading some of the other comments on this page makes me wonder if they should rename this peak Snake Mountain. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t see any snakes. I did enjoy the hike and the views from the summit were good.

Nice solo hike on a Saturday, Very little snow and the smell from Magcorp was minimal. Saw two Chukars and a rabbit. Other than that, I was the only one on the mountain. Summit register last showed Dean's trip on 1/16/2010. Thanks MikerHiker for the great directions

A wintry hike with SP member imontop (see below) and a friend of his, Dave. We hit snowy roads just off the pavement and wondered how close we could get to the summer trailhead. We made it to within a mile of that TH but we were in fog that smelled like chlorine until we got above the 5600 foot level. Amazing winter views from the summit.

My second time up but I enjoyed it a lot more thanks to Eric and Dave and their two mountain climbing dogs.

Bagged it with "The Dean" in the snow and fog. But, it was nice a sunny on top!

Although there had been a few snow falls, it was all gone and I couldn't help but think the snakes might come out for one last sunbathing day. Great area but I won't come back without snow on the ground. The whole way up all I could see was the picture on this webpage of the snake.

I think I have done it twice, once the wind was blowing form the east and the clorine smell from mag corp was rather strong

Came up from the north. Hiked with Greg. We came back the next week and hiked Black Mountain - just to the north of Craner.

One of my favorite places to be. I have spent many years walking around this mountain. Yes, the snakes can be bad. It only takes one to ruin your day..

Went in via Craner Canyon and dodged rattlesnakes on the way up.
At least I didn't have to dodge any thunderstorms as the rattlers were enough.
