Dobbs Gorgonio  Sucess!

Trip up Vivian to Dobbs, East Dobbs, Charltons, Jepson, Gorgonio and back down Vivian with Shady the Wonder Dog. Nice country but hot and steep/loose on cross country. No people until main Gorgonio trail. Round trip about 11 hours with 20 miles and about 8000 ft.

South Fork Loop  Sucess!

I started from the South Fork TH at 5:30 a.m. and quickly hiked upward past Dollar Lake in the cool of the early morning. I signed in at the top of Jepson Peak at 8:50 a.m. and then reached the top of San Gorgonio via the ridge by 9:30 a.m. I returned at a more leisurely pace via Dry Lake with a side excursion to just above Lodgepole Spring Camp. The trail from the top down to Dry Lake was hot, rocky, and less enjoyable than the rest of the hike, but the trail from Dry Lake back to South Fork was beautiful. I returned to the van at 3:00 p.m. having crossed paths with only three backpackers despite about 25 miles of hiking.

Vivian Creek Trail  Sucess!

We hiked up for Memorial Weekend. Left Saturday, 26 May at about 1200 for Halfway Camp. Sunday morning we started at about 0700 and summited at around 1000. Hiked out the same day. Did this once before in 2004 - this time was much better! Both times, though, a beautiful, fun hike. Still my highest peak to date.

Vivian Creek  Sucess!

Great dayhike on a nice cool afternoon. Trail seemed longer on the way down for some reason. Round trip time was about 11 hrs.

Vivian Creek Trail  Sucess!

Great hike. Cold and windy on the summit. With the clear day I was able to piece together some really nice panoramic shots.

beautiful mountains  Sucess!

Climbed it a couple times (May 2001 and April 3, 2005). In April, the route still had good snow coverage for cramponing.

B├╝sserschnee  Sucess!

Climbed with Ryan (TDR) on a clear day via South Fork and up the West Ridge. Nieve Penitentes covered most of the mountain making it difficult to traverse meaning postholing and bushwacking our way back via Mineshaft Flat.

Gorgonzola  Sucess!

Rangers said the South Fork Trail was covered in five feet of snow so we manned up and went up the chute. Going up the snow was packed tight and frozen, on the way down the exact opposite - took forever.
