My only summer ascent of this peak, we encountered temperatures well into the hundreds from our 4 am start until our 2 am return to the car. Keith Tasker and I each took 1.5 gallons of water, but we ran out on the way down, at 6 pm, around the second false summit.



When we reached the orange groves near the parking spot, unscrewed a sprinkler head and sucked water from the pipes. we were well into the retching-with-each swallow-of-a-sticky-throat stage of dehydration by that point.



Never has water tasted sooo good. I later entered the water treatment and distribution field as a profession.



Water is life, don't waste it.

Climbed the dramatic southern scarp of the Santa Rosas from S-22. Great route - long, but very rewarding. Car to car in 12hrs

A very long hike, and a mini-epic to boot. How much more fun could one ask for? Trip Report
