All routes on the best peak in SoCal  Sucess!

Snow creek (in winter) is the best route, followed by c2c. Marion mountain is not as dramatic but much lusher than you'd guess. This peak is my fave in socal...

Cactus to Clouds  Sucess!

Started just before 4:00am. Nothing too exciting except for a few rattle snakes. Made it to the Ranger Station at the tram in under 6 hrs. Loaded up on some food and water, and hiked the normal trail to the summit. Getting started again was tough, but once I was moving, felt good. Made the summit, a couple quick pictures and back down to the tram.

from Idyllwild via South Ridge  Sucess!

One very long, scenic, beautiful day hike. Parked one car at Humber Park, took second car to South Ridge Spring. Followed the South Ridge trail to Tahquitz Peak and the Fire lookout. Beautiful views on this section. From here, hiked up to Saddle Junction, Wellman Divide, than San Jacinto Peak. Wanted to summit Jean Peak and Miller Peak, but running out of water. From San Jacinto summit, descended Deer Springs trail to Pacific Crest trail. Veered back onto Deer Springs trail to about 7,300' elevation. Travelled cross country east to meet up with the trail leading to Suicide Rock. Down climbed some fun Class IV slabs to the climbers trail, then hiked the road back to Humber Park. Very long day. Almost didnt make the drive back to Orange County.

Nice and shady  Sucess!

It was a hot day, so we appreciated the shade on the Marion Mt. trail on the way up. Was not digging the constant swarms of flies in the a.m., however. The hike was sustained, but have seen steeper terrain on Shasta and elsewhere. Lots of crowds at the top, spectacular views of the Coachella and San Jacinto valleys. It was cool to see all the windmills from so high up!

Marion Mtn trail  Sucess!

Good hike, should be a lot of flowers in a few weeks. A lot of greenery is ready to bud above 9000ft.

Poor weather  Sucess!

Did the tram shoe in less than ideal weather. Couldn't see anything from the summit. Still good fun and a very impressive mountain especially from the north and east

Cactus to Cloud  Sucess!

Did Cactus to Cloud with other 10 hikers.
Last 1,500 ft to the peak was covered with snow. And we didn't have snowshoes nor crampons, but made it.
I hiked down all the way back to the trailhead, but everybodyelse took the cable car.
Total of 26 miles and 11,800 ft elevation gain. Took 15 hours including big lunch break at cable car station and peak.

winter storm funtime  Sucess!

Climbed solo in winter storm from Idyllwild, a fun mountain. Every tree, rock and bush was encased in ice above 8,000! Don't be caught beneath a pine tree covered in ice when the wind blows!
