First time in the San Gabriels. Loved every minute of it!
Nice and easy by following the saddle between Cucamonga and this peak. Found TacoDelStinko's stickers in the summmit register. Ice climbing in the San Gabriel's? Good luck with that.
Went up Falling Rock Canyon to Sugarloaf, across the ridge to Ontario, continuing on to Bighorn. Went down to the Bighorn-Cucamonga saddle, up Cucamonga, then over to Etiwanda.
Climbed Ontario, Bighorn and Cucamonga Peaks. Started at the icehouse trail head. I only planned on Ontario and Bighorn but Cucamonga was right there so I did it again. 8 1/2 hours car to car. I almost stepped on a southern pacific rattle snake on the descent about a half mile from the car. Beautiful day to be outdoors.
Nice hike/climb to stretch the legs on a Friday afternoon. No summit log unfortunately. Great views of the San Gabriels despite the haze.
We hit this peak on the way back from Ontario. A bit windy on the summit, but it felt great as it was a warm day.
From Icehouse to Ontario Peak and then Bighorn Peak. Saw at least 2 Nelson bighorn sheep at Bighorn-Ontario saddle. Great hike with my son! Straight down Bighorn north slope to Icehouse saddle.
Climbed with my dad after Ontario Peak. Saw 2 Big Horn on the way to Ontario, then my dad spotted 4 more on Bighorn Peak! Descended the canyon north from the summit of Bighorn. Very fun.
Went with a large group, up the canyon to Ice House Saddle, and up the side then back down Delker Canyon. Great day, good weather with some winds on top, lots of good snow for a long glisade down.
Cold and windy.
Back in the 80's a friend and I hiked up Cucamonga, then Bighorn, then Ontario, on a fine day. Back when nobody had computers, and you could not share your story with any interested folks. I first really learned how to truly posthole snow when I made a winter ascent long ago. I was hoping to do Ontario, but waist deep postholing made me go straight up to the top of Bighorn. Now I am a skier and snowshoer, but I still remember that hard lesson of deep, deep postholing
Took the trail from Icehouse Canyon and then the trail to Bighorn Peak. Didn't want to backtrack on the trail on the way down so I went down a canyon almost due north about 800 feet and hit the trail very close to Icehouse Saddle.
3rd and final peak of the day
Went up Falling Rock Canyon and the first scree slope west to the peak immediately east of Sugarloaf summit. Continued further on the ridge to Ontario Peak. Climbed Bighorn on the standard trail and descended from the summit directly to Icehouse saddle. Great hike with a lot of up and down steep scree slopes.
Been up lots of times including once with a Richard Nixon.
Went up Icehouse Canyon, then on to Ontario and back via Bighorn. Nice hike.
Climbed up Falling Rock Canyon and got Sugarloaf, Ontario, and Bighorn
Done this one several times with the bro's including my actual brother. All the gabriel peaks top my favorite list. Done via icehouse, kelly's camp, that whole hooplah.
This one took an additional 45 minutes RT from the Ontario Peak trail. Great views of Cucamonga.
Hiked it on my way over to Ontario. Nice manzanita field on the way up from IH Saddle, move over to the right.
