Iron HikerLast of the "Big Three" of SoCal for me!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2009

Iron Hiker

Climbed up from Vivian Creek - long tough day, but very rewarding. The air on top was amazingly clear and I thought I could see the High Sierra with its snow. Took 12 hrs from the trailhead and finished in the dark.....

This completes my task of doing the Big 3 - San Jacinto, Baldy, and San Gorgonio!
Now I am satisfied for the year......

Reclimbed via South Fork on September 22, 2012 - up via Dry Lake and down via Dollar Lake. Another great ascent!

whitneyhiker09Training for Mt. Whitney  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2009


We made it to the top of San Gorgonio yesterday via Vivian Creek trail. This is a great trail to train on for Mt. Whitney. I was hoping someone could confirm the round trip mileage for me as our Garmin GPS showed the total miles being a little over 18. But the trail descriptions show it as only being 16 miles round trip. We started measuring from when we left the parking lot and then up the road to cross over the river bed/wash.

missymtngirlGotta Love San G


San G holds a special place in my heart because I am fortunate enough to have a cabin in this beautiful wildernesses backyard. My most memorable experience was summiting this beauty in the spring. Had to bust out the ice axes and crampons for that one. We had the summit to ourselves at night.....hella memorable! Gotta love it!!!

First time in 1971 as an 11 year old Boy Scout. Lots of people do it in a day, but I would rather camp at Dry Lake.

Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2009


After working on conditioning for months, it was nice to finally summit San Gorgonio and be on top of SoCal. It was a struggle for me, going up the last part to reach the ridge. After 10K, it was harder to breathe, but looking forward to going after other summit sin the area.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009


San Gorgonio was my last peak of the day along the San Bernardino Divide. We took photos but did not stay long on the summit. Everyone else we met did not stay long either. It was very windy and cold on top. Clouds were covering the entire valley below and we had an outstanding view because of this. It was a long day that started at Trail Fork Springs and ended at Dry Lake where we camped for the night. Then we hiked down to South Fork trailhead the next day.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

San Gorgonio is my "sacred" mountain--because I first discovered the high mountains here, when I was thirteen (1973). Backpacking soon evolved into climbing; and I then had a long climbing career.

RobertSydnor1960, My First 11,000-foot Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 1960


San Gorgonio Mountain was the first 11,000-foot peak that I climbed. For my 13th birthday present, my father, 11-year old brother, and I climbed San Gorgonio from Dollar Lake campground. We had a 15-minute USGS topographic map as our only guide to the trail, but no description of the route or water supplies. It was a great adventure for a boy from Pasadena. A month later, we also climbed Mount Whitney.

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.
