Twice by Vivian Creek and once by Fish Creek. Though the drive is worse, I enjoyed the Fish Creek trail more.

Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2010


22.3 mile day-trip. Started at Jenks' South Fork Trail to Dollar Lake, up to the San Gorgonio Peak, down to Dry Lake. Exhausted from my longest day hike I've ever attempted.

JanGAgain on Vivian Creek with Vivian  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010


Two months after my first summit on San Gorgonio, my daughter Vivian and my son Christoph joined me on this very enjoyable hike. We left the trailhead in extremely hot conditions (over 90 F). Overnight at Halfway Camp, then a very pleasant early AM hike to the windy and quite cold summit. On the way down we encountered a huge rattlesnake "chilling" right next to the trail! We were back at our car by 5 PM. Vivian really enjoyed her first peak above 11,000 ft!

Great hike up to the uncrowded summit, freezing temperatures and high winds.

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


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2010


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2010


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!

Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2006


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!
