Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Longer than I expected but well worth it. Snow had just melted enough to not be a bother. Great views.

darinchadwickPalm Springs to Idyllwild  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2006


We went up the Cactus to Clouds, then down the Devils Slide.
3:20am started at the museum in Palm Springs.
9:10am got to the Long Valley Ranger Station. Took a 45 minute break.
12:24am summited San Jacinto at last. Took another almost hour break on the summit.
5:03pm reached the parking lot at Humber Park.
The hike up Cactus to Clouds is evil, but not impossible. We were up past the 4,000 foot elevation mark at sunrise, which is highly advisable as it levels out a bit at that elevation, making the heat tolerable until the final third which gets pretty sick from just below treeline until cresting the ridge.

Had to make our own way up through the late-season snow which hadn't melted much above 9,500 feet. Thoroughly rewarding!

First time on this peak. We camped the night before at Little Round Valley. Didn't know there was a cabin up there. What a spectacular view from the top of San Jacinto. I think it is a bit better view than from San G. Nice hike.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2006


My third and final peak of the day. I summited at 11:50pm and got back to camp at Round Valley at 2:00am. The veiws of Palm Springs and the high desert at night were impresive. I was very excited to have finished the 8000 Meter Challenge but I was also dead tired. A great end to a long day.

Date Climbed: May 6, 2006


Major hike, made it all the way from the Museum to the summit. The snow was deep at the top, needed snow shoes but didn't have them. Went cross country on the way back (luckly didn't get lost, like the couple on the same day).

Perfect weather, sunny and upper 50s (F) on top. Nice view of the ocean. This trail is 6.0 miles (GPS), not the 5 1/4 or whatever miles shown on the signs. Either way, it's about 4450 feet of gain and a great workout.

Third time up top--did Cactus to Clouds twice before. Marion Mtn is the shortes/steepest route to the top. TERRIBLE mosquitos at the trailhead for about a mile! Yeah, it's steep, but fast. Was up in 2.5 hours. Beautiful day--all was great until a guy smashed into my Jeep on the 10 on the drive home!

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2006


Living in Long Beach and working what seems like every minute of the week, its hard to get away for good summits. San Jacinto is a beatiful peak only a couple hours away. Great elevation and exposure on the peak. Good training hike from from the west side without the tram.

My first time climbing Mt. San Jacinto. It was a training hike for my upcoming Mt. Whitney trek and for the 8000 meter challenge in September. The hike to the top took forever and by the end of the day it had kicked my butt. It was still alot of fun and a very beautiful hike.

Busy day on the mountain, nice day out. Started out very temperate (low 70s) but ended up being VERY hot, probably in 90s on the trip down Marion Mountain Trail. Hazy but beautiful from the top.

California County highpoint #19 for me!
