RockfiendRoute Climbed: Cactus to Clouds to San Jacinto Peak Date Climbed: October 15, 2005  Sucess!
T-Bone and I set out from the Desert Museum parking lot at 4:52 am, reached the tram station 5 1/2 hours later, reaching the peak at 12:52 pm. We were graced by the company of our ladies 1 mile before the peak so that they could celebrate our accomplishment at the summit. The entire hike was truly a unique experience that I will repeat again. Beginning in the dark, watching sunrise over the Coachella Valley, hiking throught the various biomes, and finally celebratory libations at the tram tavern made for a unique outdoor adventure. The sweat, training, and 10 1/2 hours of my life to complete the adventure was worth every second.

12 of us from the Sierra Club reached the summit in 12 hours starting at midnight in Palm Springs. The elevation gain was 10,500 ft in 16 miles plus five more back to the tram station. The wind on top was ferocious.

From Snow Creek with thousands of feet of neve, from Black Canyon camp as day hikes, from Humber Park /Devil's Slide trail as day hikes, from the tram. Once, in winter, when there was actually snow in the plams of the town of Banning, we had a wonderful powder day off the summit.

blmcclainRoute Climbed: Round Vally Trail Date Climbed: 8th Oct. 2005  Sucess!


This was an excellent peak to get back in shape after a two month layoff! First time up to San Jacinto. Funny the drive to the peak took longer than the peak itself. The sign posts say it's 5.8 one way but I think this is too long, the actual distance must be shorter. I was able to get up and back in 3.5 hours though a maze of people on the trail. It felt good to get my confidence back by laying waste to one of these10K'ers every now and then!

After a night in Palm Desert we drove to Idyllwild and hit the Humber park trail head at 7 am and blazed up Devils Slide. The hike was fairly uneventful although hiking the PCT is a wonderful experience. It is well groomed and marked. We knocked this one off in about 9 hours.

Fun hike, late start late descent; nice sunset! This trail is fairly direct with a good amount of vertical.

davidfernRoute Climbed: Marion Mountain Trail Date Climbed: 10 September 2005  Sucess!


Beautiful day for a trip to the summit. Started from Marion Mtn. campground at 7:40 AM, reached the summit exactly 4 hours later without seeing a single soul the entire way up. The top was not too crowded, but it was pretty windy and pretty cold. Took 2.5 hours to return to the car. Loads of "Red Hot Sally" in bloom along the trail, and the streams are running pretty well. The last time I summited San Jacinto (about 7 years ago) it was a lousy experience with lots of snow and altitude sickness. Today was a different world ---- 25 pounds lighter and no snow, and no altitude sickness.

A gorgeous day to be on the mountain. My sister stood in as my partner for this , so we decided to start from Mountain Station. Wonderful vistas from Wellman Divide and the summit. Took our time getting to the summit, then hiked down in earnest to get out via Humber Park before dark! Ended up using my headlight anyway. Next time I'm out there, I'm doin' San Gorgonio!

Perfect temp at the beginning of our trip at 8.45 it was 62 degrees, it never got above 80 and the only real bummer was clouds obscuring my view on the summit, and it rained on us for the first main switchbacks on the decend,a long hike down. But man we Had a blast! Thanks to my master guide and buddy Ben.

Perfect day for a hike. Sunny all the way to the top, walking through the clouds and beautiful view from the summit.

Storm came out of nowhere on the way down, so we were running through the clouds and a very heavy rain. Sunny at the trailhead though. Beautiful!

P.S. Don't forget bug repellent!!

egooseRoute Climbed: round valley Date Climbed: july 22 2005  Sucess!
made the summit in 2 hours via the round valley trail. Took the first tram up at 1000 AM. Only saw 3 other groups attempting the summit on the trip. Large thunder storm just north comming out of Hemet at noon. Seven to eight lightning strikes and some rain. We didn't stay on the summit for any length of time.The heavy stuff staying to the north. Fun trip easy trail, my first time to San Jacinto and I've lived in So. Cal all my life.
