Mini-Trip Report for San Jacinto

Climbed San Jacinto today via Marion Mountain Trail.

Lots of snow above 9,000 feet.

Carried crampons and snowshoes but didn't take either out of my pack.

Hiking poles were very helpful. Didn't take an ice ax — wouldn't have needed it.

In places where the snow obscured the trail, there were always tracks to follow.

Have fun if you go.

Seriously though, do we still do an annual poll to guess the open date?

I'm super sad about the drought, but itching to climb some things.
