Climbed from the Cougar Crest Trail  Sucess!

Great views of San Gorgonio and Big Bear Lake -- more so from the trail than the summit, which had an annoying communications facility that whirred and blocked some of the views.

First Time  Sucess!

A group of ten summited while doing an 11-mile section of the PCT. We ascended the N/NW ridge. Some went down the N slope, while most went down the road.

Great views across the lake  Sucess!

Did this one with my wife, my sister and brother-in-law, and their dog. No shade the whole way, but great views across the lake to Sugarloaf and San Gorgonio. Couldn't find a register at the top, but did find a Big Bear 7 Summits punch.

Big Bertha  Sucess!

This was actually my first Peak Bag since I've gotten into the great passion of the outdoors. Bagged it with my buddy Miah who was in Vegas on some AF TACP training, good times.
