Great views  Sucess!

Views of Baldy almost constant. Views from the peak were excellent.

I took a short detour to Etiwanda Peak on the way down. That was about 1 hour (maybe 90 minutes?) round trip, I believe. Etiwanda lacks the tree cover of Cucamonga, so it was very windy up there. It felt great after making quick pace on the way up.

Long, snow, challenging, fun...on the way up.  Sucess!

Did this a couple years ago with a buddy and his son. Upper trail was clogged with snow but no big deal. FUN!! Top was interesting and nice! Way out never stopped!!

What a View from the Top!  Sucess!

Last training hike before the Hood/Shasta climbs. Summited under perfect weather conditions and camped at the summit overlooking the city below. Incredible views from the top. I highly recommend!

Cucamongering  Sucess!

A warm day. Harder than I expected, with all the descending between Icehouse Saddle and Cucamonga-Bighorn Saddle.

Icehouse Canyon  Sucess!

Solid day hike. The ledge provided some awesome photography. Not quite as challenging as any of the three saints, but a good one to accomplish in San Gabriels.

good views  Sucess!

the view into the LA basin is impressive. Quite a bit of vertical relief. Icehouse canyon also pleasant. Still some snow up high but avoidable.

Pretty busy day today. Good thing I started early. A bit overcast, so views weren't stuning

Nice views  Sucess!

On June 6, 2016, I along with hundreds of other Angelinos hiked to the summit of Cucamonga Peak via Icehouse Canyon. At least there weren't the thousands of Angelinois almost certainly pleasant on nearby Baldy. The hike was beautiful, starting out in a shady canyon with lots of deciduous trees, and eventually ascending to the San Gabriel Hike Country with great views of Baldy, Ontario, Telegraph, and other peaks.

Perfect Day  Sucess!

Via Icehouse Canyon/Cucamonga Peak Trail. Had one solo climber ahead of my daughter and I on the way up and met one guy coming down. We were at the top for a bite and pics while a few small parties arrived. Passed about 15 folks on the way down before reaching the IHC saddle. After that we had to crowd surf our way to back to the parking lot. Great weather, quiet for 3/4 of the time and a great break from the Baldy crowds.

My son Daniel and I left the heat in the southern California basin and enjoyed cool temperatures the way to this always enjoyable peak with amazing views.

Snow Climb from Icehouse Saddle  Sucess!

Seems like every time I go up this peak, it's in a storm. Trail was clear to Icehouse Saddle, snow climb from there. Stuck to the trail as much as possible, then went straight up near the top. Complete whiteout at the summit, again. Wind made the stay very short. I will get to see the views eventually!
