Dave DalyFull Value Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 15, 2011

Dave Daly

After years of procrastination, I finally hit this one. Did it with Deb (see below entry) and Travis. Started near South Fork Meadow TH, passed Dollar Lake and climbed Dollar Couloir to the top of Charleten then over to Little Charleten. From there, we dropped slightly off the ridge to the east and traverse over to one of the couloirs on Jepson's NE face (40 degrees) and climbed up to the top. Slogged over to Gorgonio and then down climbed a couloir just left of the Big Draw. Most of the day was limited visibility and average winds around 35 mph, including driving groppel. Car to car: 11 hrs 50 min.

Traversed from Jepson after climbing Dollar Couloir, tagging both Charltons, then climbing the 3rd north gulley of Jepson. The wind was insane on the ridgeline! I got knocked over a few times and it was alot of work just to make progress to summit. We departed via Big Draw and that was easy. We finally got clear skies, no wind or graupel around 3PM. Beautiful day for climbing.

At 7:30pm my friends and I bumped into a guy and his girlfriend without any gear at all who had "taken a nap" on the summit. Let them borrow an extra tent and space blankets.

Climb Gorgonio & Jepson from the Southfork TH. Gorgonio is always a great hike/climb.

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

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.

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.

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.
