vincent gap  Sucess!

Nice early spring climb, reached summit about mid-day. Lots of folks on the summit, but I was the only one with skis, making an awesome descent down to just above the road.

Another Great San Gabriel Hike  Sucess!

My climbing partner's dog loved it, too!
It did become quite a zoo by mid morning. Glad I got an early -- albeit later than Apline -- start!

Nice hike  Sucess!

Battling a cold, so I went slow. Started at 7 am, saw no one until I was almost down. Kind of tedious at first but up high the views really opened up and made it worth every step.

Sunny Warm Day  Sucess!

Had a great hike with my dog Motzie. We did not see anyone until we were walking off the top. Met a couple of guys doing the PCT. Good Luck Fireball. The sign in box at the top has no paper can the next one heading up take a note pad.

A Good Workout  Sucess!

Have hiked it many times, this time was while hiking the PCT. The best route was from East Fork of the San Gabriel River, past the Bridge to Nowhere, to Vincent Gap and then down Islip to Bear Creek, a nice 3 day hike.

Lots of Routes  Sucess!

I've done this one four times. Once from Crystal Lake, once from Dawson Saddle, once from Vincent Gap, and once up a xcountry route via Mt Burnham ridge and then down to Ross Mountain.

Winter Hike  Sucess!

I hiked from Vincent Gap in the snow. 12-24" of soft snow on the mountain and the hike was slow going up. Windy on the summit.

Vincent Gap  Sucess!

Great hike. I suffered my girlfriend through her first peak on this one. She did quite well for never having hiked before. Great weather that day.

Mt. Baden-Powell from Islip Saddle  Sucess!

Finally getting around to sign these logs, climbed with ODC, great hike.

Fun  Sucess!

Hiked several times with my dad as day hikes a little boring for my taste

Been here several times.  Sucess!

I like taking my dogs on the section of the PCT from Dawson to Baden Powell. There aren't many people along that part and it may be the most beautiful section of trail in the Angeles.

2 Eagle Scouts on Baden-Powell  Sucess!

My brother, my son (7yo), and I hiked up Mt Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap. The three of us had our picture taken at the Baden-Powell monument on top... 2 Eagle Scouts and hopefully 1 future Eagle Scout. Perfect day for a hike 60s-70s and cloudless blue skies.

As we were leaving to head down the trail, we met a rather serious looking trail-runner. We discovered that this was Jorge Pacheco of Los Angeles who has won the Angeles Crest 100-mile endurance race 3x (2001, 2003, 2004). He was out doing a 40-mile training run (b2b with another 40-miler the next day). I had my picture made with him right at the Wally Waldorf tree (where Jorge was looking for some water bottles he had stashed). In the background of my picture, you can see the sign announcing this as the high point (9300') for the Angeles Crest 100. Really cool that I met him at this point.

Baden-Powell  Sucess!

Did Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap: uneventful and a bit warm. Angeles Crest Hwy access to Vincent Gap is still from the east only.

vincent gap to dawson saddle and back  Sucess!

started from vincent gap at 10:35 AM, made Dawson Saddle, the road at 1:30 PM, hiked back and made vincent gap at 4:30 PM, touched summits of baden powell, burnham along the way. just under 6 hours. It was a very hot day, high nineties, ran out of water before descending the switchbacks down to vincent gap. Impressive views of the sierra and the ocean areas. 17 miles.

Route Climbed: from Vincent Gap  Sucess!

Great weather for a hike, fairly clear with some lower valley haze. A lot of snow and ice still on the lower trail. More so on north facing switchbacks than the east facing switchbacks until you gain altitude. At 8100 feet switched to crampons and climbed vertical. Modest postholing in some areas. Summit view of Baldy was spectacular. On descent ran into the only other summit hiker for the day, A Brit who was training for Shasta and going to enjoy his dinner on top. Only other soul encourted for the day was a trail runner training for the Angeles Crest 100 mile endurance run.
