Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2007


Took the herd path from the Colby Canyon Trail. The Canyon was DRY and it was hot for April, but the rocky section up top was fun. Not too difficult either. On the way down I ran into a rattler. Scarry!

Nice class 3, though the purple arrows detract slightly.

Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2007


My goal for the year was to climb 25 of the Sierra Clubs hundred peaks and this was trip No.1. We ascending via Colby Canyon to Josephine saddle and up along the ridge. The class three climbs were a bit initimading in the insane fog (visbility 15-ft), but it was quite surreal and beautiful at the same time. This is one hike I plan to do again.

Second time on Strawberry peak. Took a break from the snow and tried some class 3 scrambling. Tons of fun! Very nice day with little wind! There are still patches of snow on the north side.
I went down the East Ridge.

Got it on the third time. First time it was sweltering and I ran out of water. Second I couldn't convince my hiking partner to go for more than 30 minutes. Nice hike.

A good winter hike. It snowed on my friend Jim and I early on Super Bowl Sunday a few years ago.

5 AM drive from UCLA for a 6 AM hike
greeting Helios in the early morn with a resounding hello
truly resounding!
lovely mountain echoes
sweaty backs, well-used legs
a well-loved trail
returning to a still snoozling roommate
what hilariousness

and oh, the beauty of the San Gabriels...!

Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2006


Clear day and early morning start up Colby Canyon. The stream and waterfalls were all flowing well. Reached Josephine Saddle and started up the ridgeline towards Strawberry Peak. Still patches of snow in the covered areas. Reached the base of Strawberry and followed the well known purple arrows to the summit. Nice view but low clouds moved in quickly from the southwest. Decided to return via east ridge to Red Box.

Cloudy at home, but plenty of sunshine above the clouds... Great views of Baldy and San Jacinto from the top.

Gotta love an icy class 3 ridge. Circled the mountain and passed through Camp Colby on the way up to ascend Red Box. This made the hike about 14.5 miles round trip.

This is the only route to a summit in the San Gabriel front range that I know of that has sections of 3d class rock. I've done this route many times and it is always fun. Today, our group did Josephine Peak first, then Strawberry, then Lawlor. From Strawberry, we could see that Baldy still has snow on it.

I had a good, first 3rd class experience. Check out my trip report if you want to hear what it was like for a beginner.

Fun little section of 3rd class. Part of an eight peak HPS jaunt, beautiful weather. Only worth ascending from the West ridge IMHO.

Nice day for a hike. My 12 year old son and I had a good great time on the class three section. I dropped his backpack down a cliff by accident:-) It's orange just in case...
