Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2007

Steve Larson

A cold, clear day. Temps on top in the low teens with sub-zero wind chill. I didn't stay long! Dang, forgot the camera. The previous week's storm didn't drop much snow. What little post holing there was was due to wind drifting. No crampons, but give it a few days to warm up and they'll come in handy.

A great peak. I've climbed it from every direction over the years.

Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2006


Only 4 hours of sleep the night before and getting up at 3:00am did not help my exhaustion, but we made it to the summit on an absolutely gorgeous Fall day! Took the South Fork Trail, set up camp at Dry Lake and then made the summit in the afternoon. The hike down required headlamps in the dark, but the night sky was amazing. Temps at camp were below 20 degrees, but a warm meal and a warm bag were appreciated by all. Hiked out on a warm Sunday morning. Only passed five people on the trail all day Saturday, but a dozen or so on Sunday.

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.

whaynalFinally I Stand On Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2006


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.

Date Climbed: Feb 23, 2006


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.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2006


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.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2006


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.
