Date Climbed: Feb 5, 2015


Started in Vallecito Wash and used the old mining trail to reach the central south ridge. The route was easier than we expected however there is a lot of cactus. 3 hours up and 2 down. Hiked with Keith Winston.

Classic east ridge climb. Totally clear day, temps in the 60's. No one else seen at all. No snow but bet the storm coming this week drops a bit.

Hiked it on a sunny, clear day during a dry period with a friend. A bit more challenging than e.g. Coyote Mountain while still very enjoyable, in my opinion.

After Whale Mtn. in the morning. Hit the snow line around 4,000 feet after the big cold storm that had just finished earlier in the day. Lost my trekking poles on the way down. If anyone finds them, send me a PM. Thanks!

Iron HikerClassic desert peak - challenging, rewarding, and quiet!   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2011

Climbed with a friend of mine from school. Saw nobody all day. Went up a more ridge-like route instead of going up the wash, a nice change of pace and a few bumps that weren't too much of a problem. Returned via the "regular" wash route. Great views on top despite a bit of haziness - could still see the ocean and the two islands (115 mi away). Excellent workout and definitely a worthy desert summit!

Nice straight forward hike with some scrambling towards the top. Had planned on going after several other peaks after Granite, but had to settle for just one more.

bechttEast Ridge variant  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2010


No map and a vague description got us to the top but we descended into the wrong wash. 600' reclimb over a ridge got us back to where we needed to be. Fun climb even with the variant.

Fantastic hike, esp. if you desire getting away from the crowds. Part of what makes Anza Borrego special to have in SoCal.

Enjoyable desert climb but found too many house size boulders while descending the east face instead of sticking to the ridge proper. Live and learn...

My wife, Cinda, and I enjoyed the day. A little brisk on the summit with the breeze.
