Date Climbed: Oct 21, 2006


Perfect day for a hike with Ol' Walsher. Clear skies, perfect temps and great views from the top. Could have done without turning my ankle on the hike down, but at least I was only a mile from the car...

mlarkin2002Miller, SJ, Folly, Jean dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 26, 2005
Dayhiked from Aerial Tram to Miller (a minor peak near SJ), then on to SJ. From SJ, down to Folly and then back up to Jean. Intended to go on to Marion, but fatigue dictated otherwise. Back to the tram for drinks and appetizers!

mlarkin2002Cornell & SJ Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 24, 2004
Dayhiked from Aerial Tramway to Cornell and then on to SJ. Both peaks dusted with a light cover of snow from a small storm a few days prior. Cornell N. side was dicey in its icy blanket.

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.

surgentCross-country through late snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 1993


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.

Smith938000 Meter Challenge  Sucess!
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).

Day Hiker

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!

Done every route several times except Cactus to Clouds. No thank you on that one, I am not a masochist. Congrats to you if you are.
