One of many trail runs this year in prep for Onion Valley to Whitney run.
Single day winter solo.
i love endurance hiking. however, my body really wanted to quit half way between icehouse saddle and the peak. it felt like altitude sickness but i wasnt that high. i dunno, it was weird. nonetheless, i pushed onward and the view at the top of catalina and the entire la area was well worth it.
Decided to try for the summit with a snow storm still loitering around. Put on crampons from Icehouse Saddle and continued to summit with fog rolling in. Fabulous views from the summit were denied, but it was still a great workout.
Another fun hike via Icehouse Canyon TH. Despite it being the 405 of the SGWA, Icehouse Canyon has sooo many great hikes you can do.
Great combo hike of Etiwanda and Cucamonga Peaks, but it was mostly in the clouds. Many of the trees were covered with ice though and that was a beautiful sight.
Climbed as part of hike described in trip report where Ontario, Bighorn, Cucamonga and Telegraph Peaks climbed together.
Great hike, particularly from Icehouse Saddle up to the peak.
Did this as a night climb, perfect weather!
It was a beautiful warm Fall day, hiked up Middle Fork/Lytle Creek. Was surprised to see about 10 people on the summit. Some of the best views of the LA area!
I got to see the top of another one the great southern California peaks I've been looking up at all the time growing up here. Went down Chapman Loop through Cedar Glenn for some added scenery.
Hustled up to the summit and back down before the crowds got to thick. Pleasant weather, deer at Icehouse Saddle was a nice surprise.
Second time on this one. If it wasn't for the bugs and lack of shade, I could hang out on the summit for hours.
Second time up Cuca and peak 2 of 4 for the day. Warm weather but plenty of shady spots just north of the summit.
quiet and peaceful route...until i got to Icehouse Canyon.
hike to get in shape
Hiked to Cucamonga Peak as part of my 11 peaks day hike.
Toughest of the peaks in Eastern San Gabriels.
Dito what Deb said below. Awesome day with my Sweetheart!
Took a relatively quick trot to bag 4 peaks in the San Gabriels. 4 of 4, now I have no reason to go back in Icehouse Canyon cuz that trailhead is a filthy dump!
