runbyu1First Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2012


Left from the Mt. Wilson trailhead in Sierra Madre. Was definitely harder than I was expecting...I think partially due to the heat. I ended up hitting Mount Harvard, Hastings Peak, and Jones Peak on the way back. Kicked my butt as I wasn't prepared for the amount of vertical or time I would be out there. Pretty sweet though.

Was a nice fall day, sunny and 60 degrees on the top. The Old Wilson Trail is still one of my favorite ways to do it, a great workout!

My expectation is to always see hikers or climbers on peaks. Struck me as odd to see all of the cars!

Run this so many times it is not worth putting a date down. Typically up from Chantry and down the Kenyon Devore (Rattlesnake) or Sturtevant trails.

Date Climbed: Feb 10, 2009


Main road to top of Mt. Wilson was snowed in. Tried to tag San Gabriel Peak, but too much snow and getting too dangerous without crampons. Turned around and went to top of Mt. Wilson via the road.
