orbitorFrom Dobbs West Ridge via Jepson  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2013


After tagging Dobbs, Lil' Dobbs and Jepson, might as well hit San G since it's right there. Descent via Vivian Creek was a pain, but overall the outing was awesome.

Tracyvia Fish Creek trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2013


Rewarding day hike with Richard Rojas and Adam Marquez. 5.5 hours up and 3.5 hours down. Temperatures were rather warmish but we were still surprised to basically have the mountain to ourselves - only came across one other hiker during the first hour on the trail - nobody else the rest of the day.

Awesome hike and some amazing views on the way up the mountain. This hike got me really interested in some more challenging mountains.

pawl24 Peaks in 24 Hours  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 27, 2013


Loved the day! Headed up with the intention of hitting the two Dobbs, the two Charltons, Jepson, and San Gorgonio. It was a busy day up top. Perfect weather. Truly, top-o-the-world.

I'll be doing a 24-peak solo hike in a few weeks. Some of the "peaks" are big, like San Gorgonio, some are small, like Alto Diablo. The route is 40 miles, circular (starting in Mill Creek Valley), and I plan to do it in a day. My inspiration comes from all the folks who've done the 9-peak traverse, Ze's 11-peak loop, Rick Kent's 17-peaker, and mostly Evan Welsh's 18-peak double ridgeline route. It's doubling as a fundraiser for The Wildlands Conservancy (Galena Peak, Wilshire Peak, Bear Paw Preserve, etc).

orbitorSnow Climb via North Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2013


Finally did the infamous climb up the north face. Started at South Fork TH and followed the trail to Dry Lake, then straight up one of the ribs. Snow was complete garbage (soft and powdery) and made things very difficult both up and down. Enjoyed having the summit to ourselves.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2013


Pleasant but long with a nice group of hikers. A couple of dicey parts on the switchbacks above High Creek, some patches of icy snow between 10,500' and the windy summit.

BrRabbitSan Gorgonio from South Fork Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2013
I just came from a dayhike to San Gorgonio Mt from the South Fork. My friend and me went through Dollar lake and returned through Dry lake.

We started the trail at 7AM and quickly got to the Dollar Lake/Dry Lake sign, where we decided to go to the Dollar lake for easier ascent.

On the way up, we met a group of guys who had totally no map and had no idea which way to go on each of trail interseptions. But those were nice guys and we helped them to the best of our ability. Near the top a single lady (really in a good shape but probably no experience in the woods) shouted a question to us, "how come you guys are on a trail and I'm not" (duh, because we have a map and take our time to look at it), then she was asking each and every guy returning from the peak where to go, then when she lost a trail (right where the peak was already in direct view), she came to us again asking where to go and then a minute later she told me that I walk too slow and two minutes later that we're going in the wrong direction... At that moment I just begged that lady to hike her own hike and said good bye to her. We sat at the "wrong" peak for 5 minutes and get to the "right" peak a few minutes later where the same lady "organized" other hikers into group shots with her (thankfully, she preferred not to notice us).

We left half an hour later after signing the register and having a second luncheon of a healthy fat-loaded salami, chocolate, gorp and water. We decided to stick to our plans and went towards the Dry lake. The east slope and all those switchbacks from the top to Maniker Flat saddle (about 4 miles) were covered with melted snow crust waist deep at places. We had to tread very carefully, the trail was all but invisible and we (me mostly) done a lot of postholing and bottom-gliding. I also must tell, that I forgot to wear my winter boots and was walking in open-toed sandals... At least I was wearing merino wool socks with nylon liners... I must admit that without my hiking partner who was in much better physical shape than me, I would probably not make it through. I would either turn back, or try to get below the snow line... I don't know... It is difficult to tell now, but I had thoughts to stop looking for the trail and just "get out into the civilization anyhow" and if need be to make a camp for the night and continue another day.

But finally we got out of snow field still in the daylight and by 8PM we got to Dry lake. Then it became real dark, so we took a break, got our lights out, finished our last food and water and pressed on. 10 miles later hiked in the night, we got to the trailhead at about 11PM.

We completed the trail in 16 hours and it was a challenge and a big adventure!

4th time up San G, 3rd time running. Started at the South fork trail head, ran to the summit in 1:57:27, a new personal record. My all time favorite mountain run, can't wait to be in good enough shape to run it once again someday.
