From Mt. Disappointment Road   Sucess!

Up the road to the saddle and on up to the peak. Summit views of the LA basin were a bit hazy from the fires. Off to Occidental.

With Disappointment and San Gabriel  Sucess!

Views were better here than at the other two peaks, IMO. Could hear ghostly sounds from a music festival in Pasadena wafting up through the mountains. Was nice to be alone at the summit.

Mt Wilson Roundup  Sucess!

Peak 5 of 7 in the Mt Wilson area. Just like Markham, San Gabriel & Disappointment, couldn't find a register. Really nice views!

It's OK  Sucess!

I saw some deer on the way there from Disappointment...nice views but nothing too special resonates.

From Mt. Disappointment Road  Sucess!

Cleaning up the Mt. Wilson HPS area. Walked the service road to Mt. Disappointment, turned right at the saddle and went straight up. Not much to say about this summit. Check and move on.

HPS List finish  Sucess!

#278 with Bob, Laura & Glenn. Snow storm prevented about a dozen additional people from joining although Erin, Tina, Mike, Doug, and Kari made it to Markham Saddle before turning back to the Lake Ave TH (shuttle vehicles didn't make it to Eaton Saddle because of storm.) Nice list finish party at Lake Ave with lots of friends --thanks!

One of Five  Sucess!

From Near Red Box  Sucess!

After San Gabriel, Markham, Lowe, and Disappointment. Took the east ridge up (the southernmost of the two firebreaks leading to the summit) and the north ridge down. This north ridge was significantly sandier than the east ridge which made for a good descent route. I wouldn't want to go up that way.

with others  Sucess!

I remember seeing richard pitroski's name in the register and being the only person after him for A WHILE. Not too many people up that way. skinny trail through the trees.

A seldom visited peak....

Hardly anyone even knows this peak exists... nice little scramble to get up to the ridge, great views over Bear Canyon. Peak 2 of 2 for the day.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

We took the steep trail up from the parking lot and then looped back via the road. Very nice trail, shady and lots more interesting than the road. I appreciate a peak without radio towers, too.

Been there  Sucess!

It was on the "list" what can I say?
