2nd Ascent  Sucess!

Again both summits, but via a different route than the first time. A small, private party on a Saturday while the DPS group were climbing Granite South. We then met up with them later to climb Palen via the DPS C route on Sunday.

Cold and windy!  Sucess!

We went to the 3381 summit. It was very cold and windy up on the ridge and the top; temps in the low 40s. It got warmer on the way back down once we dropped into canyon and the wind died down. I really liked this one, quite a contrast to AZ desert peaks.

Both Summits  Sucess!

A short hike with the Sierra Club. On the way back, we climbed the slightly lower peak as well.

Standard Route  Sucess!

A little bit of a letdown after Signal and Castle Dome the day before, but still a nice hike. We also tagged False Maria. Very windy all day and the night before.

wet weather  Sucess!

More damp than actual rain, but unusual for this corner of California, one of the driest in the entire southwest. Climbed with Evan Rasmussen. Trip Report.

Winter Solstice Hike  Sucess!

Very cold conditions, very windy, temps just in the low 40s at the warmest... this is the desert? Had a good climb to the 3,381-foot peak.
