HeyItsBenw/Lawlor  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2008


Hiked from Colby Canyon, fun and too short easy scramble, dropped down and back up to bag Lawlor since the trip to Strawberry was so short, then back to Strawberry and out Colby Canyon. Smokin' hot day. Saw a few rattlers and got shook up pretty good when I got warned by a 3.5 footer <4ft away.

2x - Tagged it with Ol' Walsher and Tom. Nice little scramble, but it was completely socked in with a marine layer. Good thing I've enjoyed the view before.

kellymoeRock Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 1996


Climbed the North Face via a route called Strawberry Roam that was climbed by the Mendenhalls back in 1936. I had a topo that Ruth Mendenhall had scribbled down and a short route description. The climbing was OK and the rock was loose in sections. Tried a route up the direct center of the North Face earlier in the day but was stopped by difficult climbing in a shallow dihedral. Excellent day of climbing.

SomeYahoo77Snow on the Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 12, 2008


It was 72 in my hometown Monrovia but there was lingering snow patches on the summit. Just a perfect day. It really is one of the most rewarding summits in the San Gabriels.

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!

mgeo1st- HPS - hike  Sucess!
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.

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.
