4 peaks out of Dawson  Sucess!

From Dawson Saddle, Ross Mountain's register notepad was completely soaked...the baby wipe container obviously isn't weatherproof.

Vincent Gap  Sucess!

Great hike to Baden Powell first and then the long descent to Ross. Loved the on and off use trail to and from Baden Powell from Ross. Maybe next time I'll choose a little cooler day.

Vincent Gap  Sucess!

Dry snow all the way up to Baden-Powell; tried to use snowshoes but they sank all the way to the bottom just like boots. Not much snow on the south side all the way down to Ross. I really enjoyed the views off both sides of the ridge from Baden-Powell to Ross.

From Dawson Saddle  Sucess!

Cloudy, thunderstormy, but cool day up Baden-Powell and down to Ross. Met up with a Sierra Club outing at the top of Baden-Powell. Tagged Burnham and Throop on the way out.

Wrightwood cleanup  Sucess!

Completed the remaining eastern San Gabriels starting with Circle Mtn, then Pinyon Ridge, and finishing with Ross Mtn. Don't forget the double snow ascent of Baden Powell -- the second one hurt. Finished by assisting in a helicopter wince rescue of a climber who had slipped down the slope into a tree.

2x Going D-O-W-N  Sucess!

Did this one with Wingding the second time, took about 6.5 hours. Much easier and cooler the second time around. First time via Burnham ridge and second time from Vincent Gap. When the 2 is open, Burnham ridge is the shortest route.

From Dawson Saddle  Sucess!

Did Ross from Dawson Saddle (Route 2 on the mountain page). We tagged the non-descript Mt. Burnham on the way to Baden-Powell. Then down to Ross and then the humility of the re-ascent to Baden-Powell.
