Route Climbed: Round Vally Trail Date Climbed: 8th Oct. 2005  Sucess!

This was an excellent peak to get back in shape after a two month layoff! First time up to San Jacinto. Funny the drive to the peak took longer than the peak itself. The sign posts say it's 5.8 one way but I think this is too long, the actual distance must be shorter. I was able to get up and back in 3.5 hours though a maze of people on the trail. It felt good to get my confidence back by laying waste to one of these10K'ers every now and then!

Route Climbed: devils slide / PCT Date Climbed: 8/25/01  Sucess!

After a night in Palm Desert we drove to Idyllwild and hit the Humber park trail head at 7 am and blazed up Devils Slide. The hike was fairly uneventful although hiking the PCT is a wonderful experience. It is well groomed and marked. We knocked this one off in about 9 hours.

Route Climbed: Marion Mountain Trail Date Climbed: 10 September 2005  Sucess!

Beautiful day for a trip to the summit. Started from Marion Mtn. campground at 7:40 AM, reached the summit exactly 4 hours later without seeing a single soul the entire way up. The top was not too crowded, but it was pretty windy and pretty cold. Took 2.5 hours to return to the car. Loads of "Red Hot Sally" in bloom along the trail, and the streams are running pretty well. The last time I summited San Jacinto (about 7 years ago) it was a lousy experience with lots of snow and altitude sickness. Today was a different world ---- 25 pounds lighter and no snow, and no altitude sickness.

Route Climbed: Round Valley via tram/exit Humber park Date Climbed: August 20, 2005  Sucess!

A gorgeous day to be on the mountain. My sister stood in as my partner for this , so we decided to start from Mountain Station. Wonderful vistas from Wellman Divide and the summit. Took our time getting to the summit, then hiked down in earnest to get out via Humber Park before dark! Ended up using my headlight anyway. Next time I'm out there, I'm doin' San Gorgonio!

Perfect temp at the beginning of our trip at 8.45 it was 62 degrees, it never got above 80 and the only real bummer was clouds obscuring my view on the summit, and it rained on us for the first main switchbacks on the decend,a long hike down. But man we Had a blast! Thanks to my master guide and buddy Ben.

Perfect day for a hike. Sunny all the way to the top, walking through the clouds and beautiful view from the summit.

Storm came out of nowhere on the way down, so we were running through the clouds and a very heavy rain. Sunny at the trailhead though. Beautiful!

P.S. Don't forget bug repellent!!

made the summit in 2 hours via the round valley trail. Took the first tram up at 1000 AM. Only saw 3 other groups attempting the summit on the trip. Large thunder storm just north comming out of Hemet at noon. Seven to eight lightning strikes and some rain. We didn't stay on the summit for any length of time.The heavy stuff staying to the north. Fun trip easy trail, my first time to San Jacinto and I've lived in So. Cal all my life.

Started at 3pm in very warm conditions with threatening thunderstorms. Camped at Little Round Valley then went to summit at 7am. Still plenty of water along the way so no need to bring much.

Route Climbed: West ridge-via Seven Pines Trail Date Climbed: November 2002  Sucess!

One of the most stupid things I've done-climb to the top of a lightning rod with an incoming storm. Hiked into the clouds and about twenty feet from the summit it whited out and all hell broke loose. I was disoriented, found my way back to the trail using my compass and proceeded to hightail it down the mountain while being pelted with hail and thunder cracking all around. Got to Deer Springs Camp and all fell silent...

Climbed the Round Valley route with what seemed like half of Riverside County. Very crowded. Fortuntaley it was extremely clear so the views were incredible. Snow level was only a hundred feet or so from the top and melting fast.

Made the summit around 11:30 with my two sons, Ellis (11), and Jack (9). It was their first summit anywhere. Found a little snow in spots on the trail, otherwise no trouble getting to the top. We were passed by two super fit guys on the way up who were nice enough to take a minute and take our picture, and ran into a lot of nice people, as well as other scouts, on the way down.
