mccarthypjSeven Pine Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2009
I set up camp in Dark Valley on the Idyllwild side with my wife the day before. We drove around and took the tram up. After strolling the desert view trail with my wife I climbed the peak then hiked the nine miles back to camp while she drove back around. The 3.8 miles of the Seven Pine Trail was brutal on my feet and knees. Just too steep of a downhill for the end of a long day.

This was the mountain of my youth. Growing up in SD, I came up here and to Tahquitz many times. Good memories.

Faith & I started at the museum at 6.26- in retrospect, given the time of year (one of the longer days), earlier would have been greatly preferable... Our attempts throughout the day to 'beat the heat' by gaining elevation more rapidly than the escalating temperature proved futile until around 6,000', where the temp's were finally tolerable. It was probably worst around 4k', where the desert brush does a great job of retaining the heat while not providing any notable shade. The average temperature during the day felt somewhere between 85 - 90 deg. Ugh... Fortunately we brought enough water, & eventually made it to the tram (we popped up on the 'rim' at 15.39).

By that point we were completely wasted, though (amazing how the combination of sun/heat can just completely take it out of you...), & the combination of that & fear we would be pushing it (esp. at our pace at that point) making it back to the last tram in time just led us to the tram down. Actually I think we were both of the opinion that a cold beer & tram ride down sounded substantially more appealing than continuing.

This must be done proper, though (i.e. to the summit)- I shall return!

Date Climbed: May 19, 1978

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

To mark the 77th anniversary of Snow Creek's first ascent...I am formally signing this log. My brother and I climbed this when we were teen-agers, back in 1978. The DWA sent us a nice letter of permission to cross over their property.

Very uneventful...except we almost fell through a thin snow crust to be sucked to our deaths inside dark ice caves, where Snow Creek was actually a sub-terranean torrent of raging ice water. Arrived on top at 6:30pm and slept in the hut. Also got a terrible sunburn that day. Dumb teen-agers don't always know about wearing sunscreen.

Second ascent in two weeks. 4/11 climbed Snow Creek with Miguel, Will, Bob, Cory, Charles, Tom, Edu, and Alexader. Great sunny day. Windy and freezing cold arriving to the summit.
4/5 skied up with Scott via the Marion Mountain trail. A lot of route finding, and too many trees cut that make slower the hike. Fun to ski though.

From the tram with a group of 8. I hiked too quickly and the altitude got to me, I received a pounding headache and nausea. Made it to summit and descended via tram and was well within 10 minutes. Great views!

Day hiked with great group of guys - Miguel, Paul, Ron, Steve, Alex, Gene and my man Dave. Summitted in 12 hours and had beer in hand soon after. Kudos to Miguel for keeping us on track before sunrise and pushing the pace.

Hiked with my Dad and John. Although pretty congested with other hikers, it was a great achievement. No views, due to the cloud cover.

Beautifull day of climbing via Snow Creek with Miguel and Jon. We day hiked it and I made it to the summit in just under 12 hours. Lots of tracks due to the rescue up there the day before. It's hard to believe there is such an unbelievable alpine climb so close to home. I will definatly be doing this climb again.

Went up the ridge between cornell and miller, hit miller then went on to san jac. It was a brutal hike and it was HOT! but it was worth it. Snow was mush so it was hard hiking/snowshoeing but glissaded down from the top and it was pretty sweet :)
