orbitorC2C with 3 Peaks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 27, 2013

Final summit of long day coming up from the desert floor. Ran into some snow patches on the traverse from SJ and needed a while to find the true summit. On the climb back to SJ my fuel tank finally hit zero, getting to the top was a struggle. Finished off a 12,000' gain day by powering up the ramp to the tram.

Strapped on the crampons just below the summit of San Jacinto and made our way down to Folly...returned to the SJ-Jean saddle and dropped straight down the meadow and back to the Tram. Great day!

Me and a buddy hiked up Fuller ridge and then summitted Folly Peak and continued up to the top of San Jack. A real fun day on a great trail.

Hiked, skied up with Scott via the Marion Mountain trail. A lot of route finding, and too many trees cut that make slower the hike. Great day, good snow, and fun to ski, although short slopes to ski.

DebPerfect Day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2009

Deb

Couldn't ask for more - beautiful weather and crunchy snow all the way...OK OK I did break thru and fall into some boulder wells once I passed San Jacinto... :P I was amazed how beautiful the scenery is between San Jac and Folly; truly one of the most lovely spots along San Jacinto range that I have experienced. AND this summit completes my quest to tag all peaks in the range. YIPPEE!
Great day for a solo snow hike. Took the most direct route from the tram and cut down the mileage; loved front-pointing up San Jac's SE slope.

Alex WoodFolly Peak?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008

Alex Wood

Now I know why its called "Folly Peak". Those false summits are annoying. Good bouldering, amazing views, no people = great side hike.

Hiked it solo from Marion Mtn trailhead, nice trail, lots of shade, not a lot of people, but just a bit steep. Great way to spend a Sunday.
Couldn't find a register on top.

Very enjoyable quick scramble over rock and through the trees from the summit of Mt. San Jacinto to Folly. It takes far less time than you would think when you look at Folly from the top of Mt. San J.
