First Ascent  Sucess!

Left from the Mt. Wilson trailhead in Sierra Madre. Was definitely harder than I was expecting...I think partially due to the heat. I ended up hitting Mount Harvard, Hastings Peak, and Jones Peak on the way back. Kicked my butt as I wasn't prepared for the amount of vertical or time I would be out there. Pretty sweet though.

Have hiked to the summit a few times before from different sides, the last time on a cold and rainy November day 2011 from Chantry via Sturtevant and back via Upper Winter Creek.

Via Old Wilson Trail  Sucess!

Was a nice fall day, sunny and 60 degrees on the top. The Old Wilson Trail is still one of my favorite ways to do it, a great workout!

Drivers  Sucess!

My expectation is to always see hikers or climbers on peaks. Struck me as odd to see all of the cars!

Chantry Flats  Sucess!

Run this so many times it is not worth putting a date down. Typically up from Chantry and down the Kenyon Devore (Rattlesnake) or Sturtevant trails.

Hometown pride  Sucess!

Climbed this baby many times. Trailhead is walking distance from my front door. Don't know what I'd do without this mountain nearby.

Via Road  Sucess!

Main road to top of Mt. Wilson was snowed in. Tried to tag San Gabriel Peak, but too much snow and getting too dangerous without crampons. Turned around and went to top of Mt. Wilson via the road.
