mlarkin2002Better planned and executed dayhike via Vivian Ck. trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 25, 2005
12 years later, went back much better prepared. Made the summit on a cold, windy November day. Views to N. obscured by clouds. Views to S. were outstanding.

mlarkin2002Ill-prepared dayhike attempt via Vivian Ck. Trail
Summer, 1993.

Decided on a whim to attempt San Gorgonio. Took a day pack filled with a bunch of crap that I didn't need. Wore boots that were not meant for hiking. Didn't pack sunscreen. ... etc ... Made it to 1/4mi below summit (where the Dollar Lk. trail joins from the N. side), then decided to take a nap on some rocks near the trail. Woke up completely sunburned and dehydrated. Decided to get down ASAP - my only good decision of the day.

Third time's a charm. I went up the Fish Creek trail, which I find to be prettier than Vivian Creek. The old plane wreck looks like big chunks of scrap metal now, but it is still interesting.

With careful driving, I managed to get my '01 Accord all the way to the trail head, despite what the rangers said.

Since then I've done Vivian Creek Trail as part of a nine-peaks trip on 06.17.06

Vivian Creek. Long slog of a hike. 6hrs up - 3:40 down. First 2 miles out of Vivian Creek are tough - going down as well. On the summit the SB Sheriff's landed their chopper - we were told by a deputy they were looking for two missing hikers. Wild stuff - bit of a meloncholy summit at that point. Smog obstructed the view but you could see Big Bear Lake and San Jacinto.

Exhausting all-day hike. Took the Vivian Creek Route. Wonderful views, happy to be down afterwards... visited my 3-month old niece afterwards.

2nd time on this peak, first time in the winter. We camped one night at hi-creek, and woke up early to make the summit. It was really windy, there were little "snow tornados" everywhere, but it was an absolutely breathtaking winter wonderland experience.

Glorious day! Views were in excess of 75 miles in all directions. Have never seen Baldy so clear in the summer. Still good water flow at High and Halfway Camps. 5 hours up, about 3h 45m down. Great, rugged (in spots!) trail hike. As far as mileage...have to agree with Gary Suttle's book.

The second peak of the 8000 Meter Challenge. It started out very hot but the higher I climbed the cooler it got. I had beautiful views from the top, I could see Mt. Baldy but San Jacinto had clouds arround it. I began hiking to the top at 10:15am and got back to my car at 6:00pm, my feet were very sore by this point but I still had to go climb San Jacinto.

Food poisoning the day before; late start--had to get the permit; TONS of mosquitos; lots of people and Boy Scouts on the Vivian trail, so took a different way down and got lost. For 13 miles I saw NO ONE. Finally bushwhacked down to the river and was stung by bee--all for a beautiful view from the highest peak between the Sierras and Mexico.

Camped at high creek, left camp at 4am and summited at 745am! The view was even more amazing than I was anticipating. We were alone on the summit to enjoy the moment.

UPDATED- 5-24-08 Myself and 3 friends climbed the Middle east chute on the North Face for some spring skiing. Climbing up the face with 35+ lbs of ski shit was tough, but happy to get the North Face done!

I don't remember how many times I've been to the top of San G. Great peak, but I've never had very good summit views.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2006
Spectacular view of San Jacinto along the Sky High Trail section, but haze obscured all but the summit of Old Baldy and practically everything else. This hike took longer than expected (14 hours) so I probably wasn't in shape for it.

I hiked up with friend Trayce S. and we then skied/snowboard 1/2 down. Tough going up without crampons. Making it for a long day.
Great skiing down to the bent tree.
