TyFoster88Summit on may 1st  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2009


Summited may 1st in 5 hours via vivian creek. After halfway camp took mountaineering route instead of switch backs. Great day of hiking but weather turned on us quick once on the summit. 30 mph gust of Ice strorm and fog made for a scary decent of the first thousand feet back towards high creek where the weather let up. Good day hike right now, trail mostly cleared of snow, few patches after south col.

Return to the summit after about 15 years. Via Vivian creek trail. Lots of snow in places but melting fast. We did not need crampons.

After living in Southern California for 18 years, I finally got up to the summit of San G. Me and Omar took the South Fork Trail up to Dollar Lake Saddle and climbed a couloir up the north face of Charlton, then traversed Charlton down to Little Charlton and then took the North Ridge to Jepson and then made it over to San G. It was a really really long day. We started at 6:45 and got back at 9:30. It was BRUTAL, but amazing!

DigglerGreat day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2009


A great & exhausting dayhike! Started at 7.05 (after everyone who summited that day), summiting at 13.14. Took off at 14.19, arriving back at the car at 18.11. Only had to put on crampons during one short section right after High Creek, in icy gully after lost the 'trail,' & didn't end up using snowshoes. Went up Vivian Creek.

Snow significantly lengthened the endeavor, but made it much more of a 'mountaineering' experience (also made it much more beautiful!). A great introduction to the area- I want to do more around here now!

The extremely helpful ranger (hooked me up with everything I needed as I inquired ~20 min AFTER he'd closed- started driving at 9.25 from SF, hauled ass, got to ranger station at 16.35, 5 minutes after they'd closed!), seemingly unfounded (suicide or homicide) area closure, Christian camp near TH filled with kids, & the 20 or so SD SAR members training there made the experience that much more memorable!

TyFoster88summited 1/7  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 7, 2009


Summited on 1/7
snow was soft during the day, snowshoes a must
one day summit was very difficult
plan on staying the night somewhere on your way back down
only 2 tracks going up from vivian creek trail to summit
amazing views and conditions improving over next weeks
good trip but even with training im still sore
bring sunscreen and chapstick! wind is intense on summit.

Tried to dayhike it via Vivian Creek. I was with a friend who was a little slow and I had a curfew of being back at the trailhead at dark, so we ran short on time. Very cold at tree line with plenty of snow above 9500ft.
