The trail was clear except for patches of snow and ice up to Dollar Lake Saddle. Then we had to put on our crampons. Actually, our objective had been San Gorgonio, but when we realized getting there would mean a descent down an icy slope in the dark, we settled for Charlton. It was a worthy second choice. As it was, we spent an hour or so in the dark on the return to the trailhead but at least then we were on a clear trail.
Not much coverage. Really had to pick our way down from the summit. Got a few core shots. Beautiful weather the whole time though!
First of 4 peaks climbed that day.
Hiked as part of 9-peaks
One of the less memorable bumps encountered between San Gorgonio and San Bernardino during a Nine Peaks dayhike with Glenn. Followed the crest of the broad ridge from Jepson over Little Charlton and Charlton to Dollar Lake Saddle.
Hiked to the top of Jepson Peak first, then to Little Charlton and Charlton on the way back.
