DebFrom Wellman's Divide Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2007

Postcard perfect scenery this morning with fresh snow on the ground and in the trees; maybe I should have been paying attention to the trail! I took the tributary slog between Jean and Marion from just before Wellman's Divide; walking on TOP of manzanita for nearly 2 hours was NOT fun. Thank goodness for the map and compass to get me off of Marion in quicker fashion.
Awesome views from Marion summit block even with the forboding clouds coming from the south. There was a bit of whining going on as I downclimbed the summit block with all the snow and ice....good thing no one was around to hear it. :/

Thought I was at summit from Jean when storm rolled in and lightning started flickering. Saw that I was 20 yards from summit block when my hands (were on the rock) tingled from another close strike - weighed the risk of another lightning strike, decided I wanted to live a couple of more days, hauled ass down.

Snowshoe outing with some assistance in the form of the tram: Cornell, Miller, San Jacinto, Folly, Drury, Jean, and Marion. Surprisingly enjoyable day for a bunch of HPS peaks--Cornell was by far the best of the lot. Summit block on Marion was icy and kind of fun.

This is the way to go. Strap on the crampons and head straight up the slope from Devil's Slide. Though in the warm sun I was a little scared of the falling rime ice(off trees). Nice views, especially in winter.

I should have read the guidebook first. Bushwhacking up from Wellman's Divide was a bit of a chore. The way down was worse. Just beat the weather out in the afternoon.
