mdostbyRoute Climbed: Vivian Creek and Fish Creek Date Climbed: Numerous  Sucess!


Have climbed San Gorgonio many times throughout the years. Favorite trail is Vivian Creek and favorite season is the wintertime.
Nice warm day. Little bit of ice on the road at the trail head. More ice on the trail just past Vivian Creek Camp. No need for crampons......just be carefull. Ice and snow in shady spots of the trail beyond Halfway Camp. The west facing slope above High Creek Camp had a good covering of hard snowpack. Only saw one set of footprints....(Maybe Josh's from last week). I put on crampons at the creek in High Creek Camp and ascended the slope to the ridge. Followed the ridge north to just below the long traverse to the summit ridge and then took off my crampons. It was warm enough that the snow was getting quite soft. Soon after I was on the summit pile of rocks. Great views. Decended all the way to trail head without crampons.
Vivian Creek 12/15/2002
Dispite a questionable weather forcast forjan, myself and two others (who we had just meet via the internet) decided to climb San Gorgonio anyway. Turns out the weather was near perfect (for a late Fall / early Winter day). As normal for this time of year the trail had many sections of ice and there was a small amount of snow above High Creek Camp and on to the summit. The ice was more of a hassle than anything else. Not enough for crampons but just enough to make the hiking slow and tedious. Forjan and myself made the summit in very windy conditions. As usual the views were spectacular.....we were inbetween cloud decks. We watched as the clouds swiftly moved up the slopes of the San Jacinto and the San Gabriel Mountain Ranges in the distance. Very fun day!!!

Can't believe it's been so long since I've been to the top of San G. Fun day with Miguel. Hiked a loop starting up Dobbs Ridge to Dobbs Peak then over to Jepson and onto San G. Came down Vivian Creek.
