Have climbed the Skyline trail to Round Valley many times but never completed the trip to the Peak. Had great weather on top with about three feet of snow.

With sticking in the drainages to the right cuts off at least a mile.

One of many trips to the top but this was a memorable one. Ran the route from the county park in town to the top and back with 13 time Catalina Marathon winner, Bill McDermott, and a few others. A fire was burning nearby and the Devil Slide trail was closed. Our group was interviewed by a Palm Springs TV crew when we arrived back down.

A nice overnighter at Little Round Valley. Sat on the summit for over an hour looking over at San G. Almost stepped on a baby rattlesnake near the trailhead on the way down.

Long dayhike by my standards, but pretty fun. Got buzzed by gliders at the top. They sneak up on you silently then suddnely there's a loud whizzing as they fly past you. I didn't see it coming and it nearly jumped out of my skin.

This was an absolute perfect day in SoCal and San Jac was a pleasure to play on. Hard to believe how warm it was daytime and my Round Valley bivy got down in the 20's that night! Now that I successfully summited, I can start checking out the nearby peaks ... Jean, Cornell, Carumba.....

Poor pitiful me! The weather shot me down but I had a successful bivy in Round Valley. Low 30's and 15 mhp winds, rain clouds racing in early afternoon. Too much ice and not enough gear.

Nice hike up to the summit. We encounted a well consolidated snow on the trail about 1/3-rd way up. Kicked steps on the final slope to bypass the switchbacks. We carried trekking poles.

If next storm deposits more snow, the snowshoes will be a must.

Great hike. Just a little rain & lightning on the way down. Got "buzzed" ("Whooshed?") by gliders while on the peak. Seriously crazy dudes. Wingtips within ~10 ft. of peak rocks, and NOT above them! Fun day with 5 others..

Day hiked with Alejo from Humber Park, starting about 8:30pm, summitted about 2:20 pm and back at trailhead about 6:30pm. Beautiful clear day.

My Friday morning started off with a nice drive from San Diego to Mount San Jacinto via I 8 to hwy 79 - hwy 371- hwy 74- hwy 111...that was a very relaxing drive... I was facinated (not hard for a Marine) by the beauty of the country side. I would recommend this route if your not in a hurry. After stopping several times to get some photos I finally made it to the Palm Spring side of the mountain and with two gallons of water and my trusty day pack I made my way up the steep grade in the parking lot on the way to the ticket booth and rode the tram up to the mountain...I don't think I like that tram and will probably assault that peak from Humber park. Meet several hikers at the summit, took a few pictures and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The Park Rangers were spread through out the area and most asked to see your hiking pass...You don't have to wait for the station to open, just grab a pass fill it out, drop the original off and keep your carbon! On the way out drop off the carbon copy!

Excellent night hike! Did it in ~8hours. Cold at night with the wind chill, but worth the climb. Summit Hut door kept opening with the wind and didn't provide wind block like we expected.

Third summit for me (first via Deer Springs), first summit for my wife, Gabriela. We summited about 6:05 am from Little Round Valley so we could watch the 6:12 am sunrise. Spectacular sunrise! See my trip report for details, water locations, and you can click here to see my photos.

Note: the summit register in the hut is full and people are leaving scraps of paper. Someone needs to bring up a new log book.

My first time up, decided on a sunrise ascent. Left a little later than expected, got on the trail at 3:25am. Almost got lost a few times on the hike up, being dark and all. It was a beautiful night, lots of stars, a half moon, and not a soul in earshot. Just made sunrise by 5min.

We made it this time! engineer_charley and I on our second attempt to make it thru the snow. Beautiful view from the top. Couldn't find the summit log, maybe under the snow? Lots of people on the summit but most took the easy way and rode the tram from Palm Springs.

mookyeeRoute Climbed: cactus 2 clouds Date Climbed: june 14 2003


left ramon street at around 7:00a and hit the tram with our group of eight around 3:00p. Not too bad, even with 100 degree heat - it gets cooler as you go up. After a quick nap, headed for the summit at 4:30p but turned around at wellman junction around 6:00p so we wouldn't miss the tram and have to walk down. nice trip, bring as much water as you can drink! the sign says "1.5 gallons", i'm more like bring 2 gallons in tha summer. I'd probably leave a little earlier to make a summit bid next time, too. Good times . . .

2nd attempt, 1st success (tried in March, but snow shoes = slow shoes, especially w/ full packs--see trip report, *sigh*). Overnighted at the state/natl boundary where the trail out of Saddle Junction meets the PCT at the top of the ridge (so, could this be called the Wilderness Divide?). Snow fields under the trees were firm in the morning, soft towards lunchtime. Got to the top just after scads of trammers came down, so had some firm pack to crampon up in. Great view of Gorgonio, but the coast all haze, and could barely make out the Salton Sea. The hike out was okay, but those last two miles back to Humber were a tired trudge. But we made it this time!

This climb was only a few days after a big storm dumped about 2-3' of fresh snow on the mountain. The snow was so light we were sinking in up to our waist even with snowshoes!! Awesome time to climb the mountain. Clearest day I've ever seen in So Cal. I'll be back next winter!
