mlarkin2002Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2009
From the base of the chairlift/highway 2, up the N slope/ridge on some old disused road. Got faked out by the N summit, so traversed over to the S summit, climbed all the boulders vying for the high spot. Passed on Twin Peaks this time.

Hiked from Buckhorn first to Waterman and then to the East Twin. Great views all around. Ran into deers, rattlers, and a bear (between Twin Peak saddle and junction to Waterman).

Zhenya77Mount Waterman ski descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 1, 2008

The road leading to Mt. Waterman old ski resort is closed about 3 miles west. It was a sunny cool winter day in Pasadena. After finishing some work at JPL I drove straight up in the mountains. Preparing the gear and packing did not take that long, but I left parking lot around 3:30 pm. The snowboarders whom I met on the way up were quite surprised to see me going up that late in a day. Well, the hike was pleasant and I reached the summit around 4:40 pm. Watching the sunset over the San Gabriel mountains covered in a snow was quite extraordinary. The snow here does not fall that often, but when it does happen, you have to see it and experience in full. I start my descent from the icy top. The snow quality was not that great, until I reached a narrow coulor full of rocks. With some route finding I skied down the steep slope and was near my car in now time. Definitely do it right after the California rain. If you wait too long, the snow becomes crusty. Remember, it is only 6000 ft at the bottom of the mountain.

Did Waterman with Bruno and his fiancee as a warmup for San Gorgonio the next day. Nice short hike with great view on a rock outcropping to the south. Be sure to check out the cool rock outcroppings to the east.

Climbed many times over the course of a few years. Usually from Waterman Gap, many times I would climb in the winter - awesome ski down the closed resort slopes as long as it isn't too icy, as is usually the case.

Climbed this one many times. The trail from Buckhorn is shorter and more popular than the one from lower down HWY 2. Interesting rocks to climb on the flat, broad, summit.

Climbed both Waterman and Twin Peak with ODC. Then we explored the east ridge about 3/4 of the way to Triplet Rocks. Great hike. Here is the Google Earth kmz file showing the route with photo placemarks.

Hiked this with my 5 month old Husky/Shepherd pup Kodi, and his 2.5 month old friend Akita/Shepherd pup Shasta. All did a great job and had a fun time with the little snow on top. No peak register to be found.

One of the more recent times I was up there. This is my favorite short trail. If you want a quick getaway and have less than 3 hours of time, this is it!
Go up sometime in winter and wait till the sunset; you get the most amazing alpine glow on Baldy!

Stopped up at the top on my way back to Twin Peaks. It was a gorgeous day without another soul in sight on the way up or at the top.

Did Waterman on the return from climbing Twin Peaks. My first time for either mountain. Nicely maintained trail all the way. Even though there was the typical Southern California haze in the direction of the L.A. Basin, you could still make out Catalina Island from Waterman's summit.

I used to ski there almost exclusively when I was much, much younger. It was a nice hike except for the debris scattered around from the lodge. The lodge was a little spooky too, but it was a gorgeous day and a great hike with Rob and my doggies.

Hiked to the summit many times. Not the greatest view from the summit, but the rocks to the south and below provide an excellent vantage point. Nice views and a great area.
