Route Climbed: Guadalupe Peak Trail Date Climbed: June 1998  Sucess!

I climbed GP on perhaps the hottest day of the year. Nevertheless, it was actually a pleasant hike, as things cooled down the higher we got. We just made sure to take a lot of gatorade, water, and bananas. I especially enjoyed the amazing contrasts: pine trees and views of the searing sonoran desert landscape below.

camped at the base, nice hike carried three year old daughter up. Temp around freezing at the top 30-40 mph wind. Clear great views. An interesting and worthwhile climb.

Route Climbed: Pine Springs Trail Date Climbed: 12/2000  Sucess!

Very windy night in the tent at the campground near the trailhead. It was still quite windy at dawn when I left but the wind lessened quickly and was just a nice breeze when I arrived at the top mid-morning. Great views, especially the back side of El Capitan. Neat walk on easy trail. A little ice in shaded areas near the top (It was very close to Christmas). I didn't see another person until I started down. I recommend the drive south from the park. Very few people, big views and some stunning cliffs to the west.
