greekclimberRoute Climbed: Devils Slide Trail Date Climbed: October 21, 2005  Sucess!


Started at the trailhead around 8;30, and was back at the bottom by 1:30. The views from the top were great, but the majority of this hike was pretty boring, especially along the first 2 miles of the trail. The brush gets too high in places and your views are obscured.

jkowalskiRoute Climbed: North Face Decent route to ridge to summit Date Climbed: 2000 or 2001  Sucess!
Very fun hike/scramble up north face decent route to the ridge. I attempted to stay strictly on the ridge all the way to the summit but hit some 5th class sections so I skirted them to the right and continued up to the fire lookout tower. Fun hike up, but came down the South Ridge/Ernie Maxwell trail that got hot and boring so I cut cross country about half way down and headed in the direction of Lily Rock and shortened my trip back to the parking lot. Next time I'll retrace my way back down along the ridge and down the NF decent route.

This was my fourth time here, so to make things a little different I decided to take the Devil's Slide Trail instead of the South Ridge Trail like I had on my previous three ascents. There were a few dark clouds in the sky this day, but no rain.

I really like the final aproach above the rock. The exposure is fun there.

Dayhike on a cold day in the fall. We saw a pair of hawks mating, awesome sight, clasping talons together spiraling straight down thousands of feet and parting just over the trees only to rise and do it again!

Headed up the trail on a whim while a friend I was visiting was at work. Was turned back by a couple feet of snow at saddle junction. Contemplated post-holing to the summit, but that didn't last long.

Nice view from the lookout tower. We were alone at first but as we left about 15 people arrived from various directions. Camped in Tahquitz Valley for a couple days. Most streams have good water flow, but a few were dry. Photos here

Had a bit of light snow on the trail as my wife and I made our way up. An early morning trip and we had the top all to ourselves.

KatwomenRoute Climbed: Ernie Maxwell Trail Date Climbed: December 2003


I took my pet human and her friends out for a stroll along the Ernie Maxwell trail...There was a bit too much snow and ice on the Devil Slide trail and even though I have great four wheel drive capabilities the humans were ill equipped to keep up.

This is one of my favorite training peaks in Southern CA. I especially enjoy it in the winter with lots of snow and ice.

The snow on all the trees and rocks made for some interesting pictures. Above 8000 feet, I was inside a cloud, and at the summit, visibility was about 100 feet. I'll have to go back some time when the sky is clear, so that I can see the view from the top.

Crispy clear day with the mountain nearly to myself. Bone drilling 25 degrees at trailhead but I was stripping off clothes on the way up. Lots of ice (who says instep crampons suck?) and rock hard snow; must've rained then froze last night.

No epics if you don't count stepping through the ice over a creek and getting lost off trail for over an hour........typical stuff for me!

First trip to Tahquitz and it was fantastic. Beautiful country side, great weather (clear sunny skis) and I even enjoyed getting sun burnt . It was good to climb on American soil again! Thanks Deb!

Actually I free solo climbed the Trough on Tahquitz Rock and bushwacked my way due south to meet up with the South Ridge Trail. Had a fantastic time all by my lonesome blazing a personal trail and literally running down from the summit onto Devil's Slide so I could get the usual Buffalo burger and beer at Jo'Anns. Beautiful day!

Gorgeous weather and great views. Cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon (down low on the Ernie Maxwell trail). The route described makes a great loop, although a longish day (~11.5 miles?). Called home (San Diego) from the top--wife said it was raining, and looking south, I could see Cuyamaca Peak poking though the cloud cover. There was also a "prescribed burn" (near Warner Spgs) smoking up the south horizon above the marine layer. Nearing Humber Park again, under Lily Rock, I could hear the climbers yelling their belay commands to each other. Mosquitoes weren't too bad, but gnats were maddening as they hovered just in front of my eyes despite copious amount of repellent.
