eric.hannanFirst Big One  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 8, 2007


This was my second attempt at the mountain. The first time I had just moved to California and thought it would be a good idea to randomly climb a mountain in the winter. To say the least we didn't make it! Second attempt we hit a snow storm, all but myself and my friend Jesse turned back. The top was so bone chilling (and we were under-dressed) that we could only take a few pics and run back down. Snow made it impossible to see the trail so we just bombed it as much as we could. Great Climb lots of snow!

Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2004


Snow in Southern Cal in July. How great is that by itself. Hiked via Vivian Creek Trail. I love that kinda Shangri-La setting at around 7200' with the stream running through. Summited over Thanksgiving overnighter a year ago also.

jsboydVivian Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2006
This was one of the good wet years. We were spending a week at Forest Home Christain Camp and Conference Center. We took a day off to hike the Vivian trail from Forest Falls. I was 45 and my sons were ages 15 & 11. We started a little before 7 am. We reached the top before 1pm and made it back to the car by 5pm. There was plenty of opportunity to fill water bottles along the first half of the way. The first mile or so the trail was a little steeper with loose rocks. The rest of the trail was a more pleasent walk.

Have climbed from South Fork (Dry and Dollar Lakes) and Aspen Grove. South Fork is unlike anything in SoCal during a wet year. Will try it next from Vivian.

My brother and I went up Vivian Creek and enjoyed the top for the first time. Longer, but fairly straightforward day hike.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2007


A long, long walk but entirely worth it. I think this trail is way underrated. I felt as though I had the entire mountain to myself!

LCCold Summer Night on Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2007


I've climbed this mountain several times throughout the years. This was the first time I attempted the grand loop though, starting from Vivian Creek, then descending down through Dry Lake to South Fork, then making my way up Dollar Lake, exiting out of Momyer Trail. Great experience, highly recommend this backpacking route.

TorstenWVivien Creek fave...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2007


I have climbed this mountain many times, spring and fall. I have even used crampons over the top ice fields. That was fun! I would really like to do a severe winter stay with all the gear along. And, try some technical climbing on the Jepson north face when it's all snowed in...

My wife and I started out at the south fork trail, we camped at dry lake the first night and summited on the second day. We spent the second night near dollar lake and hiked out the next morning. Fun trip.

Ol Walsher

Climbed Ol' Greyback with my Ol' Buddy CBUELOW. Camped the night before at High Meadow Spring Trail Camp in windy and cold conditions. Not much water there. Stashed our packs at Dollar Lake Saddle and beelined to Ol'Greyback the next morning. This would be the first of four peaks that day. The night before we knocked out Alto Diablo Peak from our camp.

Date Climbed: May 5, 2007


1st of 4 peaks that day with Ol' Walsher. Hiked over from High Meadow Spring trail camp, left our packs at Dollar Lake Saddle and headed straight to the top. Windy and cold at the summit with clouds obscuring the views south and east. San Jacinto was barely peeking above the clouds to the south. After eating a sandwich and signing in, we made a beeline for Jepson.
