SSS - Seven Summits Solo. Beautiful day and weather. Jean, Shirly (AKA Bob's), Marion, Newton-Drury, Folly, San Jacinto and Miller.
with San Jacinto, Miller, and Jean. Had ambitions for more, but cold and mild AMS limited the outing.
six peak loop including miller, san j, folly, newton drury, marion, and jean.
Final summit of long day coming up from the desert floor. Ran into some snow patches on the traverse from SJ and needed a while to find the true summit. On the climb back to SJ my fuel tank finally hit zero, getting to the top was a struggle. Finished off a 12,000' gain day by powering up the ramp to the tram.
Lots of rocks today. With Cornell, Miller, San J, Drury, Jean, and Marion.
Bryan and I climbed 6 peaks even though there was a foot of fresh powder. Cornell, Miller, San Jacinto, Folly, Newton Drury, and Jean.

Loop from the tram including Cornell, Miller, SJ, Folly, Drury, Jean, & Marion.
Strapped on the crampons just below the summit of San Jacinto and made our way down to Folly...returned to the SJ-Jean saddle and dropped straight down the meadow and back to the Tram. Great day!
Me and a buddy hiked up Fuller ridge and then summitted Folly Peak and continued up to the top of San Jack. A real fun day on a great trail.
Via Fuller Ridge trail and peak 4 of 5 HPS peaks that included Black Mtn, Castle Rocks, San J Peak and Ranger Peak. Easy traverse from San J summit to this non-descript bump. Beautiful fall day.
Hiked, skied up with Scott via the Marion Mountain trail. A lot of route finding, and too many trees cut that make slower the hike. Great day, good snow, and fun to ski, although short slopes to ski.
Couldn't ask for more - beautiful weather and crunchy snow all the way...OK OK I did break thru and fall into some boulder wells once I passed San Jacinto... :P I was amazed how beautiful the scenery is between San Jac and Folly; truly one of the most lovely spots along San Jacinto range that I have experienced. AND this summit completes my quest to tag all peaks in the range. YIPPEE!
Great day for a solo snow hike. Took the most direct route from the tram and cut down the mileage; loved front-pointing up San Jac's SE slope.
Nice view of Fuller Ridge. Part of a 6 peak hike with a Sierra Club group.
Did this once at night with a near full moon to escape escape the skeeters eating me up at night at LRV.
Now I know why its called "Folly Peak". Those false summits are annoying. Good bouldering, amazing views, no people = great side hike.
Hiked Cornell, Miller, San Jacinto, Folly, Drury, Jean and Marion. All are great summits, lots of 3 class and summit blocks. Here are my GPS tracks and photos.
Hiked it solo from Marion Mtn trailhead, nice trail, lots of shade, not a lot of people, but just a bit steep. Great way to spend a Sunday.
Couldn't find a register on top.
Very enjoyable quick scramble over rock and through the trees from the summit of Mt. San Jacinto to Folly. It takes far less time than you would think when you look at Folly from the top of Mt. San J.
Enjoyable snowshoe loop from the tram station.
