amongthecloudsWonderful Experience  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2014

Hiked to the summit solo via Vivian Creek, began under the stars just before daybreak and finished under a nearly-full glowing moon right after a fiery red sunset - both sunrise and sunset oddly occurring at the exact same spot on the trial during ascent and descent, respectively. Completely new forest/mountain territory for me, really wanted to take my time with this one and savor it.

It was such a great experience, everything seen on this hike is what I've missed and longed for when hiking the LA mountains further west - this one reminded me of hiking in the Sierras. The summit and summit approach were considerably windy but nice and quiet. The up isn't too bad aside from the sneaky false summits hiding out of view until right when you think you made it to the top. Descent was long - or rather, its easy to forget how long it was during the ascent! I was considered visiting Jepson Peak as well, though with my leisurely pace it wasn't in the cards this time.

2nd time to the summit. Last time was in the snow so this was a lot different than last time. Be ready to bring enough water as there is none really to speak of.

Last peak in 9 peak challenge done over Memorial Day weekend. Beautiful weather at the top, a few patches of snow still left around. I completed 7 of the 9 peaks, my wife did 8 of them and 2 of our friends each did 7. Limber Pine Spring was still flowing (we camped there first night). Trip video here: http://youtu.be/-29-ObWUHMk

3rd time I have been up this mountain, and it had to be the most difficult one. In the past I have always just did the climb in one day. This time we camped and had to a haul way too much stuff.

Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2013
Led a group of 10 hikers from the SEEING TRAILS HIKE GANG as an overnight backpacking trip via the South Fork Trail. We went a few days after San G received it's earliest snow fall on record and during the Government shut down. Given these obstacles, everything went very smoothly and even the completely unexperienced had no issues on the trail at all. Amazing.

This was one of our last training hikes to prepare for Mt. Whitney in a day and I thought that this peak via Vivian Creek was harder than Whitney in a day. The summit was incredible, however. We got buzzed by a glider which was really cool.

According to my GPS this turned out to be more miles than any book I had read. Almost missed my plane back to Utah.

After tagging Dobbs, Lil' Dobbs and Jepson, might as well hit San G since it's right there. Descent via Vivian Creek was a pain, but overall the outing was awesome.

Spent a few days camping out at Dollar lake and Dry lake, made the summit on the second day. Spent the other days enjoying the beauty of the mountains.
