San Jacinto, Falls Creek Cirque?

Does anyone know anything about routes in Falls Creek Cirque on Mt. San Jacinto? Here is what it looked like a few days ago from Leatherneck Ridge:

Sorry, can't help you, but that is an impressive image. Looks like a much higher Sierra Peak.

Technically, cirques are glacial formations. And most geological studies have concluded that the San Jacintos were never glaciated. So you may need to come up with a new name for the upper reaches of Falls Creek. :)

On March 6, we reconned Falls Creek in a brutal 16-hour round trip. I now know why I've only heard of one ascent of the drainage (which, incidentally, ended in a helicopter rescue).

Here is my trip report.

In case anyone cares, I went up and completed the route the other day.

On April 24, we returned for an ascent of Miller's northeast face. Does anyone know of prior ascents of that face?

The trip report is here.
