Via Vivian Creek  Sucess!

Long and hard for someone in only average shape (like me), but beautiful and well worth it. Finally made it to the top of SoCal 6 and half years after moving here.

San Gorgonio  Sucess!

The date is approximate. This was one of the first trips of the UCI Mountaineering Club that Fred Rhoads and I started in 1967. Several of our club members (mostly women) hiked the long trail to the summit. Paul Gerhard, who had joined our club (to meet women), was among us. Paul was killed in 1968 in Nepal on the first American Dhaulagiri expedition (Boyd Everett expedition). I was impressed on his descent from the summit by running down the scree slope of the North Face of San Gorgonio.

finally got around to it  Sucess!

Got to the parking lot at 6:45am and it was already full. Parked in the lower lot for a different trail. Up and down in 7.5 hours - it was strenuous, fun and although there were a lot of hikers, the crowds thinned out after a while and it wasn't too bad on the trail.

Vivian  Sucess!

I was surprised at how nice the trail was, well done on a mostly great gradient. The section after the 1st thousand ft was awesome, lush and with very large incense cedar and pondarosas, didnt expect that. Did San Antonio (Baldy) the day before via the North backbone trail. Ultra #41 and U.S. Super prominence (4,000+ ft vert) #72/142.

San Gorgonio  Sucess!

Long day with the HPS. Somebody was having their wedding on the summit. Something I wouldn't mind doing in my wedding.

Dobbs Creek variation  Sucess!

Started at Momyer Trailhead. Hiked up Mill Creek to Vivian Creek trailhead. Turned off the trail at the start of the Dobbs Ridge. Dobbs Ridge which was a long class 2 ridge. Connected to the San Bernardino Divide Trail near Jepson Peak and made my way to San G. Descent via Momyer seemed to take forever. Perfect weather, very little wind at the top.

Winter Ascent 2014  Sucess!

Combination from South Fork: Poopout Hill, Zahniser and Gorgonio via Mineshaft Saddle and Sky High Trail. At the top there was a 5-gal beer keg hauled up by some very determined folks (!), so we were in for a treat.

Adventure 16 3-Peak Challenge!  Sucess!

Climbed this as part of the Adventure 16 3-Peak Challenge. I hiked Mount San Antonio, Mount San Gorgonio, and Mount San Jacinto in three days (nearly 41 miles). Very challenging! For this second peak, I camped at the San Gorgonio Family Campground (has showers!) and hiked up the Vivian Creek Trail. Super long, hot, and strenuous climb but was rewarded with an outstanding view from the top.

nice 3 dayer  Sucess!

Went up with Nick D. Hiked the ridge all the way to san G. Grabbed Jepson, charlton, and little charlton on the way back. A couple IPA's had our names on them at camp so we hurried back. Only saw people up top the whole 3 days-perfectly executed lowkey mission. My sixth time on top of San G. was a good one. I'll be back soon.....
