shefightsfireBeautiful day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2011
3rd or 4th time on the summit this year... first time I knew the site existed to sign this! Gorgeous, windy morning on the peak. From the Vivian trailhead to the survey marker on the summit took me just under 3 hours, 40 minutes. I ran into a total of one person on the way up, and he was a volunteer from the US Forest Service sawing through trees that had fallen across the trail. If you enjoy solitude, I definitely recommend hiking this trail on a weekday if you can, because this was way closer to a "wilderness" experience than any of the (much more crowded) weekends I've picked in the past.

I also picked up quite a bit of trash (everything I saw, in fact) on the way down, and challenge others to do the same. I know most people here are not the uneducated/disrespectful/lazy culprits who left it in the first place, but seeing it and walking by it doesn't make us a whole lot better :)

The trail up Fish Creek is in great shape and it meanders slowly up the mountain. It's the perfect trail for a long trail run and I had a great day cruising up to the summit and back down to my car.

HarlantheDogFirst summit ever!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 13, 2010


First summit ever in my life! Hiked with Dan and Kai. Camped at Dry Lake the first night, then summited and back to the car the next day. Awesome hike. I was sore the next day and my paws were a little raw. But I want to do it again!

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2011


9 peaks traverse is the best route to the summit. Winter is also a good time for the more standard routes. Summer on viv creek? heat and crowds both, best to avoid.

Hiked from fish creek trailhead.
Nice clear day, mildly windy on top.
Snow drifts cross the trail above 10,000 but had no problem.

iditarod811st peak of the season  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 2011


Beautiful hike despite the 70 mph winds all along the summit ridge. Really eerie and grand to watch (and feel) the clouds rush in from the Coachella and San Gabriel valleys.

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.

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