wordlessnatureGreat SoCal Scramble  Sucess!


Have climbed this 3 times, each via the West ridge from Josephine Saddle. Plenty of fun to be had on the rocks, plus a nice leg warm-up out of Colby Canyon. An area to be nourished and treasured.

royandersonColby Before Fire  Sucess!


Did this twice before the fire. It was really fun. One time I did it with my then girlfriend, now wife. She almost went off a cliff coming down the top when I let her lead, until that incident. It was never so easy to see the little markers coming back down the class 3 section before the fire. Hope this reopens soon, because the scrambling made it unique for Southern California.

Fun final climb up to the summit from the west. We were a little off route at the beginning and climbed some sketchy, crumbly rock, but once we found the faded arrows, the route was easy. There is still some poodle dog to negotiate between Josehpine and Strawberry, but it appears the area may be opening soon as there was a large Sierra Club trail crew working on the trail from Red Box to Strawberry Saddle. Continued along the ridge to Mt. Lawlor after Strawberry.

Hiked up Colby Canyon from ACH. From Josephine Saddle, went up west ridge to summit. Trails are messed up, but it's still beautiful up there!

Hiked up from Colby Canyon back in the eighties a couple of times. A really fun hike and a great peak. The final scramble it lots of fun. Did it once with lots of fall snow, excellent views when it is clear.

yikes...I remember jumping when I heard that rattle from behind a rock. I didn't have to think twice about high-tailing it outta there! On the flip side, it was a lovely hike.

Started from Red Box to Strawberry-Lawlor saddle. Nice up and downs to Strawberry summit. Did Lawlor on the way back to Red Box. Many steep sections and nasty yuccas on the descent from Lawlor.

Love the climb up from Colby Canyon. Last time made it a loop going around the trails around the north side on the return. Very nice area.
