East ridge route  Sucess!

Parts of the east ridge route are clogged with scrub growth after heavy winter rains. Evening views south were nice but I have one more to do tonight, so off to Barley Flats.

East ridge route  Sucess!

Perfect weather and beautiful views over the eastern range and southern canyons. The use trail is getting a bit overgrown with yucca and thorny brush in parts, and it was a shame to find a shotgun shell and lots of broken glass on the first "hump."

Nice Short Spring Hike with Good Views  Sucess!

Hiked up the east ridge from the Angeles Crest highway. High clouds above and fog below led for perfect viewing conditions. It was the first of what was supposed to be a long day of peak-bagging along the Angeles Crest. After another short hike to the top of nearby Peak 5,420, however, I foolishly drove my low-clearance vehicle onto the the Mount Mooney Road and got stuck in the dirt. The fall-out from that led to a hiatus from peak-bagging. Hopefully that hiatus will end soon.

East Ridge Route  Sucess!

After Strawberry-Lawlor. Quick scramble from the parking area at MP45. Enjoyed an hour-long picnic in the shade afterwards. Summit has surprisingly nice views. New register placed on 4/12/17.

I somehow ended up on summit  Sucess!

I didn't really research this hike, just pulled over along the highway and found what looked like a doable route. Ended up being a pretty crappy scramble and in hindsight I would've done it differently. After pushing through dense brush I ended up on the ridge where there was a nice trail to the summit. The other day I was looking at Mount Sally from Vetter Mountain and noticed that there is a nice use trail along the east ridge so I would probably just go up from there next time.

From MM 45  Sucess!

Last summit for the day before having to drive back home. Thought it was going to be quick, but actually took some huffing and puffing up the east ridge to summit. Surprisingly good views in all directions. And was the only peak (beside Lewis and Mooney) that actually had a register. Good end to an easy day.

Beautiful little morning on Sally. Went onto Mooney and then to my first trip to Mount Williamson. Lots of snow that day.
