From the tram  Sucess!

Hiked with Brendan (barely 11 yrs old). Great views. Tram was closed prior day due to the thunderstorms in the area.

Training Hike  Sucess!

There were patches of snow pretty early on from the start of the hike about 2 miles into it. No yack tracks were necessary....I summitted in waterproof hiking boots. Some sections are blocked by snow and a little tricky to navigate. There was snow and some icy sections near the last .3 miles to the top.

Pretty moderate to heavy traffic early in the day. Our tram left at 12:00 noon so we were some of the last to summit. Lots of people summiting this day.

The weather was beautiful, nice and sunny, not too cold or windy. I had 2 layers, beanie, yoga pants, and gloves and I was warm while hiking. I had my down jacket for the resting stops.

My partner got altitude sickness on the way down.

I recommend the food at the bar if you take the tram including the salmon appi and the portabella mushroom, brie & candied apricot pizza.

All in all, a great training hike!

Devil's Slide Trail  Sucess!

Mid-December hike from Humber Park, with 6-12 inches of snow on most of the trail. Took about 3.5 hours up, and 6.5 hours round trip. My 32nd ultra prominence peak.

What a difference the gym makes  Sucess!

Second time up this peak from Marion Mountain Campground. Beat my time massively from my first outing here. Marion Mountain is a great place to camp and attempt this peak from.

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 third and final peak, I camped at the San Gorgonio Family Campground (has showers!) for a second night then drove to San Jacinto and hiked up the San Jacinto Peak Trail. I almost got turned back due to the threat of thunderstorms but the skies finally cleared in the afternoon. I was then able to complete the 3-Peak Challenge!!!

C2C  Sucess!

Started at the Palm Springs Museum at 3:00 A.M. and after a brief stop at the tram continued on up to the summit. Weather and views were perfect.

New Year Climb  Sucess!

An easy relaxing climb from the tramway station.

San Jacinto  Sucess!

Fabulous hike and peak. Everything was enjoyable about this one from the tram ride up, to the hike, to the awesome views from the summit, to the beers back at the gondola station. On my descent I went over to Jean Peak and made my way down from there. This hike completed the "3 Saints" over the three day weekend. Ultra number #36 for me, only leaving Eddy to get all the California Ultra's. California CoHP # 16.

Devil's Slide to PCT  Sucess!

Devil's slide to the summit, camped overnight in little round valley. Then continued to join the PCT back to Devil's slide. A decent amount of extra distance/elevation, but definitely worth it. Beautiful area.

Devils Slide Trail  Sucess!

With Boy Scouts. Carried a watermelon to top.
Also climbed again from the tram several years later.

round valley  Sucess!

Was going to camp at Round Valley but arrived in PS too late so took he 8am tram instead. Easy hike to summit.

No register there. Ranger said they want to "preserve the wilderness experience" meaning that that they must remove them whenever they find them.

Also the ranger said they leave camping permits outside the office at Long Valley for anyone to pick up if they take a late tram or arrive after the office closes (at about 5:30)

C2C  Sucess!

Started from museum at 3A. Made the peak at 1P. Weather was great, with sunny warm temps and a slight breeze. Went on short hike off the main trail to Miller Peak on the way back to the tram.

Finally  Sucess!

After I don't know how many years of driving by and hiking other nearby summits, I finally tagged this last summer. Great hike and terrific summit.

Many Years Ago  Sucess!

I climbed this so long ago I don't remember when, sometime during the 80s.

Marion moutain to San Jacinto   Sucess!

Beautiful hike, one of the prettiest summits so far, horrible parking!!!! Will do it again in the winter!

Ran up on a great day!  Sucess!

Ran up the Cactus to Clouds route from the North Lykken/Ramon Street trailhead. It was a really nice day, albeit a bit hot with some serious wind below 4000 feet. I hit a bit of snow above 6500 feet, but it was never terrible. I probably should've put IceSpikes on, but didn't. I didn't go real hard and made it to the tram in about 3 hours and 20 minutes of running time. I ate lunch and waited there for my wife to get up the tram and join me and then the two of us went the rest of the way to the summit. It was quite windy and cold on top, but beautiful! We made it round trip in about 2:20. Amazing experience.

3x  Sucess!

Once via Cactus to Clouds from the Art Museum, and twice from Mountain Station. One of my favorite mountains.

Countless visits, just one sign-in  Sucess!

I've done this peak too many times to even count but I better sign it in just once. Summit registers shouldn't be this easy to reach :) Love this peak, trying not to wear it out. Favorite route is via Fuller Ridge since you can see your destination most of the way and its a ridge.
