rocketsredglareThree way with Vivian  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010

rocketsredglare

A group of eight grew to nine and then shrank to four. Myself and brother in law, and two newbies being introduced to the mountains. My bro and I had done the mountain before, years and years ago. One of the group got twisted up like a pretzel on the way to high camp and we soldiered on without him and let him rest. We tagged the top, SLOWWWWWLY, celebrated with a little salami, cheese and whiskey. Got my second wind and ran down to camp. Low and behold came across our friend and he was on his way UP!! Really proud of him and had a great time!!

Nice hike...took 8 hours. Being a sea-level guy, definitely felt the thin air up top.

Went up S Fork, down Dollar Lake Saddle, over Jepson, Little and regular-sized Charlton. Nice flowers, and ... different. I'm amazed those three small subsidiary peaks have register boxes (though most are vandalized).

If San Antonio is Old Baldy, San Gorgonio should be Old Lumpy. The South Fork Trail takes forever to get to the point.

We hiked up the Fish Creek trail, camped at Mineshaft Flats and then hiked to the summit on Saturday. Still have several large snow fields to cross on the trail between Mineshaft Flats and the summit. If we had known we could have turned off the trail before the last snow field and gone direct to the summit, that snow was steep and slippery.

Climbed San Gorgonio, Grinnell Mountain, and Lake Peak via Fish Creek. Beautiful day, but water was a little sparse.

Solo hike Vivian Creek. Well I guess solo is not the right term as there were plenty of others on the trail. Lots of snow from high creek camp onwards. Took me 9 hours up and 6 down. Ugh!

With Jepson's North Couloir as an ascent, we took the fun way down on skis in the Big Draw. Awesome long line with terrific views!

First climbed as a snow trip in May 2005 and had just a great time, I got it into my head that it'd be cool to camp on an 11,000 ft summit in January.

Well, we did and it was great conditions until we got to the summit, so windy we could barely walk and we got no sleep at all. Couldn't wait until morning. Guess all those windmills below us should have been a clue. Wouldn't trade it for anything though.

First time doing any sort of summit climb. Had been asking my Dad to take me sometime, was exhausted afterward but had a lot fun.

Unexpectedly gusty above 10,750'. Cached the skis there (wisely) and struggled to keep standing all the way to the summit. Had a nice trip down, though!

I have made this trip over twenty times using the Vivian Creek trail, and every time I get to the top I always say "..I think I'll try one of the other trails next time...". This was my son's first trip so I thought it would be a good idea to introduce him to switchbacks!!

This is the first mountain my dad took me to climb. Made it up for the first time when I was 12. Look for the glow bugs in the summer months.

Dayhiked to the top via Vivian Creek, but have also backpacked in from Dollar Lake. Great way to get some exercise and get out of the smog. First experience with Ticketron for a backcountry campsite ;-]

I went to the top eight times when I lived in SoCal. I always remember camping on top with my dad when I was 15 in 1981. Right as the sun was going down, some other camper stood on the highest rocks and was playing a flute with the sun behind him. Kind of a mystical 60's type moment.

Climbed up from Vivian Creek - long tough day, but very rewarding. The air on top was amazingly clear and I thought I could see the High Sierra with its snow. Took 12 hrs from the trailhead and finished in the dark.....

This completes my task of doing the Big 3 - San Jacinto, Baldy, and San Gorgonio!
Now I am satisfied for the year......

Reclimbed via South Fork on September 22, 2012 - up via Dry Lake and down via Dollar Lake. Another great ascent!

Climbed this three times as a training excercise for Whitney and Shasta. Good 18 miles route all on trail. Top has beautiful views but has been very windy each time.
