RickFRoute Climbed: Devil's Slide Trail Date Climbed: May 19, 2001  Sucess!

I took my brother on his first hike. I never told him that I had intended for us to bag the peak. We did it and I was afraid he would never hike with me again. But, now he is my regular peak-bag partner. The coolest thing we saw that day was a sail-plane doing a fly-by only about 30 feet above the summit ridge.

Wow! Have I enjoyed this mountain. My first two trips were via the Marion mtn. & Round Valley during the summer. Then I spent the next three winters trying to climb it in Feb. Every year we got completely dumped on! And finally, we made it after our third attempt! I think this is a great way to indroduce oneself to winter mountaineering! Just did a nice overnight in May of 08, up Fuller Ridge, excellent hike!

Eric TiptonRoute Climbed: Snow Creek Date Climbed: May, 2001
Joel Koury, Bob Cable and I climbed Mt San Jaciento via the Snow Creek route. We started at 12:00 AM under a moonlit sky. We hiked up the creek past a couple of waterfalls and a little 4th class climbing. We hit the snow tounge @ 5600' and snow slogged our way to the summit @ 3:00 pm. Great trip, the canyon is beautiful. We took the tram down.

Perfect Day for a great climb. Snow on the trail almost the entire trip from the ranger station, but only about 6-8 inches. Sunny, with temps in the 40's and 50's. Light winds at the summit. A guy at the top recorded the temp as 51, but that was in the sun, so I think it was a little cooler than that.

A funny story. Miguel Carmona and I decided to ski from the Tram to the Summit in February of 1981.. We didn't know that we needed permits for the ski up. About a mile from the tram, Ranger stoped us and asked for permits. Miguel, although he speaks good English, started to talk to the Ranger in Catalan Spanish and I, once I cought on, talked to him in Czech. I remember the Ranger waved his hand, said something about "damn foreigners" and let us go. We were laughing all the way to the summit.

Day 3 of my SoCal County Highpoint Tour. Tram was out of service for maintenance this week, so I took the Devils Slide route. Started at 4a, and had the summit to myself. Didn't see another soul until below Junction Saddle on the return. Back to car at 10a.

Afterwards I drove to San Diego Co. to climb Hot Springs Mtn (with a fire raging not 5 miles away), then on to Imperial Co. to climb Blue Angel Peak. I'm done now, thanks.

Beautiful views. We left the tram at 11:00 summitted around 2pm and stayed atop for about an hour. Great trail, and the views from atop to the desert floor are simply amazing.

We had a great trip. The older boys and more expierenced parents climbed up from Devils Slide (Humber Park). The younger scouts and new parents came up the Tram and we all met at round valley and spent the night togther. Sunday morning up and at it. Scott, Ryan , Clay , Grant ,Cameron , Russ , John , Will , Danny , Ansel , Priscilla , Shane , Shea , George , Seth , Travis and Gregg made the top. Mike , Bruce , Wesley , and Kyle waited at the saddle. It was a great trip except the lack of water. We carried it all! Mark and Kevin headed down early flu bug.

I started out on the trail from the aeral tram at 9:15 a.m. I reached the summit at about 2:00 p.m. It was a beautiful hike, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I did experience a bit of altitude sickness due to lack of sleep the night before. It is a beautiful trail, with spectacular views.

Got a late start, leaving the tram at about 2:50 PM with the expectation that there may be some headlamp time in the evening. Not being in the best shape and spending too much time talking to others on the trail, it took me until 6:00 to reach the summit. On the descent I did finally need the headlamp about 1/4 mile from the ranger station. It was a cold, windy, but beautiful and enjoyable day.

This was my second ascent up this route and conditions were a little hot but very clear. Made it to the summit in 4:28, then walked down to the tram and took it down.

Nice 10,400 ft vert / 35 mile workout. The trail was snow-free until about a mile below the tram, where it started to get pretty icy. It remained icy until about a mile above the tram. The rest of the hike to the summit was on well-packed snow. I wore running shoes, shorts and a t-shirt the whole way, except I put on a light jacket near the top. I didn't bring any money with me so I wouldn't be tempted to take the tram down. (NOTE - 2/21/02: I just read the guilty's comment below that the tram ride down is FREE. I didn't realize this when I was up there, but it's good to know!) Times: 5:27 up, 4:44 down.



Many thanks to mdostby for his great San Jacinto page!

Hiked to the summit many times throughout the years. Great views from the top! Someday I would like to attempt the Snow Creek Route.
