Route Climbed: Icehouse Canyon Date Climbed: Sat, July 30, 2005  Sucess!

Bighorn Peak was the second of three peaks I bagged today. I went up Icehouse Canyon and then up to Cucamonga Peak. From the saddle between Cucamonga and Bighorn Peaks, I went up the ridgeline to Bighorn Peak. From there I picked up the trail across to Ontario Peak. Then back down to Icehouse Saddle and to my car. Great day. Bighorn Peak lived up to its name. I saw a beautiful bighorn sheep on the ridgeline. Read my full trip report on the Cucamonga Peak page.

Wrenched my knee on a subsequent winter summit during the descent (no crampons or ice axe). Duh!

Route Climbed: Ridge from Cucamonga-Bighorn Saddle Date Climbed: 6/11/02  Sucess!

I climbed up from the trail that crosses the Cucamonga-Bighorn saddle. The ridge is easy to climb with minimal barriers. I continued from the summit down the face to Icehouse Saddle. Nice hike-added some excitement to the area going off trail.

Route Climbed: North ridge Date Climbed: May 30, 2004  Sucess!

Having visited all the high spots in the Cucamonga Wilderness but one, Bighorn Peak, I decided it was time for a visit. Had a great day. Had to thrash through some brush on the north ridge. Came down the trail to the west, then down through Kelly's camp. A lot of campers there. Memorial Day weekend. Go figure.

Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: June 8, 2003  Sucess!

I hiked with Murray Zichlinsky 'til Icehouse Saddle. Murray then went onto Cucamonga Peak while I took the broad north ridge of Bighorn Peak from the saddle to the top. It was about 20 minutes from the saddle to the summit. Signed the register and then descended about 800' to Cucamonga Saddle and continued to tag Cucamonga Peak. A nice workout.
