0ukamiVia Marion Mountain Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 2, 2012
Relatively strenuous for a day-hike. More for the novice mountaineer or experienced hiker than for the average person. Great scenery, awesome views from the top.

Beware of your pace, if you take frequent breaks and go uphill slowly, while not starting early enough, you could be finding your way down in the dark. Careful planning can negate this.

Started at the museum trailhead at 4 am in Palm Springs and did Cactus to Clouds. Rode tram back after 11 hours of effort. Perfect day with light wind and about 55 degrees above 8,000'

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2012
Second time doing this hike and it's one of my favorites. Great summit! Good alt gain at the start, then it levels off to let you catch your breath, and then a good gain at then end to challenge you a bit. This route is a little annoying because once you merge with the Tram Trail it gets a lot busier.

orbitorFrom Snow Creek via PCT  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 12, 2012


Completed what has to the hardest on-trail approach to San J: from Snow Creek below the northern face, following the PCT for some 20+ miles, then up Deer Springs trail (over snow and postholing) to the summit, down to the tram. 30 miles, 10,400' gain. Harder than C2C.

Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2012


Started with just Skyline in mind, but made good time and felt great, so continued with full C2C. Ran into snow from Round Valley and postholed to above Wellman Divide, where we intercepted the regular trail and followed it to the top.

Date Climbed: Apr 14, 2012


Last snowshoeing outing of the season was absolutely fabulous in the wake of a departing storm. Went straight up via Sid Davis winter route to the Miller Saddle, then to summit.

Regular trail covered in ice from Wellman Divide, but distinguishable. Almost got blown off the top by 60+ mph winds. Upon returning to tram, found out it was closed and we were stranded on the mountain. Spent night in mule shed next to ranger station.

My first C2C was a complete success: perfect weather, strong group, 100% summit rate (17 of 17 made it).

Rode the Palm Springs tram up and climbed the 5 miles to the summit. Second time and best time! Great day and good miles, beer after at the tram station bar was delicious!!!

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.
