Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2011


Nice hike with San Jacinto, Cornell and Miller Peak. Decided on leisurely hike this time versus joining CAB to do 7 peaks.

cweightSolo Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 20, 2011


Rode up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway ~8500 to start. Then you have about 2200 more feet to climb spread out over 5.5 miles. You have to check into the rangers station to get a permit. I was late in getting started because of business meetings in the morning and didn't start climbing until 3 pm. I had to really hustle up to summit and start my descent before the sun set. Coming back down I was treated to a wonderful sunset. It was a great hike 11 miles in all I would certainly recommend it.

jliebesDevil's Slide Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2012
Left Humbert Park at 4:30am and was at the summit at 8:30am. There was 1/2" of new snow covering the trail from top to bottom. Under the new snow, all the protected parts of trail had a lot of mixed ice, packed snow and deeper snow up to about 3 feet. At least half the trail was snowy/icy. I was glad to have my ice ax and carried it much of the time, but trekking poles would have been fine too. I fell on the ice a bunch of times anyway. Made it back to the car at 11:30. I figure I spent an hour dealing with the snow and getting off trail in the dark etc.

Up/down Marion Mountain trail as I was sick of evaluating weather forecasts waiting to get out in the backcountry on my splitboard. Winter can start anytime now...

One of the best I've done in southern California. The view at the summit was amazing!

Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2011


Another great trip organized by KathyW and SoCal peakbaggers. Snow (on trail) started at 5700', and made the travel tougher. But the scenery was extraordinary; a sea of clouds below, and unusually clear for SoCal.

Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2011


Fist time I did Cactus to clouds... started out the route solo at about 4:45AM. Continued the route with another solo hiker who had a similar pace. Finished the hike to the peak in 7 hours with a stop at Wellman's divide. All and all it was a great day and can't wait to take this route again!

klotitoC2C, first time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2011


With the Socal Hikers and Peakbaggers. Began at 3:20a at the art museum and made it to Long Valley in 5:47 h. Took a more leisurely pace to the very crowded summit. Felt tired, but surprisingly good after the 12:00 h ordeal. Tram down.

Real nice...

I've climbed this peak 5 times so far. 3 times up devil's slide, once from dear springs and once on a rock climb/bushwhacking adventure up the south side between deersprings and devil's slide. Once climbed in 4 hrs in the middle of the night...in my underwear.

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011


First time up to the peak was on July 1st, 2011. Took the tram up, camped and hiked up. Then I heard about the crazy hike starting from the valley floor and knew I had to do it. Cactus to Clouds, at it is called, was the most challenging day-hike I've done. Definitely bring lots of water on that trip with you.

Great views from the top, awesome trail. We took the Marion Mountain Trail from camp. Questionable distances, but worth every step. Actually had the summit to ourselves, too, which I hear is rare... (last tram must have already departed)

Don't remember much about this one, but we started early and got back to our campground just before dark.
