TripoliRickthe Peak with Most of my SAR missions


Of the local peaks, I've been up Mt San Antonio (Mt Baldy) the most...well over 200 times but have been on more rescue missions on the Mt. San Antonio vicinity. Probably because of the tram or the fact that the PCT goes near by. I've been up via 11 different trails/routes from different sides and has a surprising number of springs/streams for a high local "desert" peak. Even has a cool hut near the summit. Hardest way up for me was up from Windy Point while doing structural geology work on the way up. On one decent down Snow Creek back in the seventies, we incountered rattlesnakes actually three feet up in the bushes we were plowing through...scary!

Hiked it via Deer Springs. Too many people on the summit, still good though...

Nice easy hike from the tram to the summit. Hiked a granny pace and made the summit in three hours. 110+ degrees in the valley, only 68 degrees at the summit.

First Jacinto hike in the summer. Kinda boring with no snow, but still a nice way to spend the day.

Went with Wes again. He had to #2 on the summit, but he was nice enough to keep the turtle at bay until we reached Round Valley's composting toilets. We should all strive to be as strong as Wes.

First time on SJ peak!! Made the summit in 4 hours via Marion Mtn. TH. Not too bad for me considering we did the Tahquitz Rock to Tahquitz peak hike on Saturday.

Awesome weather and an equally awesome trail. Saw a friend (Nick)I have not seen in over 12 years. Very cool to look down Snow creek from the top...impressive.

Fourth time up; first time traversing over Jean to Marion with challenging snow conditions (see Jean log). Summited in 3 h 20 minutes from Devil's Slide and didn't stay long due to dozens of Boy Scouts on my tails. Had Jean and Marion to myself.

I climbed this peak by various routes in various seasons from 1999-2004, including an interesting winter bushwack/scramble via Folly Peak.

This was my 4th time on Snow Creek and I still enjoy it tremendously. It has become an annual climb for me. This time it was quite the social climb as I climbed with 10 other SP'ers: Luis, Jason, Kevin, Mike, Rick, Tina, David, Roman, Ryan and Jon. Started at 4:20am. Summited by 3:45pm. Back at the Tram by 6pm. All in all, an awesome day out near Palm Springs! Pics here.

Was training for bigger mountains, and this was a fine place to learn some skills.

Backpacked from Palm Springs to Round Valley and summited the next day, took the tram back down. Because of all the snow, we saw nobody else hiking the trails and nobody else camping, either. Last 1000' to the tram was icy but crampons helped. Incredible 360 degree panorama.

My son Lance (age 19) and I had the summit to ourselves. Breezy and cool - beautiful day. Have to say thanks to a local named Todd who probably didn't summit (he had summited earlier in the month using skis) but gave us some good info on the way up.

Took a group of rookie hikers to the top. Riding the tram up and down make this a very nice entry level hike. A good way to introduce people to hiking and actually get them to the top of an 11K foot peak.

RyanMountainCactus to Clouds  Sucess!


For my second time up San Jac I did the Cactus to Clouds trail with my friends. Started at 4am from the palm springs TH and reached the tram station around 1pm. Stopped in the restaurant for a quick beer and then headed up the last few miles to the summit. Reached the top just as the sun was setting. Smoke from some nearby wildfires mixed with the suns rays making for an impressive sunset.

We ran back down to the tram station and tried to sneak on the tram without paying (I know, we're dirtbags). One of my friends made it but two of us got caught and had to pay the fee. We made friends with a guy that worked in the tram restaurant on the ride down and hitched a ride with him from the tram parking lot back to the TH in Palm Springs. I could barely watch as we proceeded down the windy mountain road at about 70 mph. Luckily we didn't die and the trip was an overall success!
