Watch Out for Rattle Snakes...They'll Gettcha

yikes...I remember jumping when I heard that rattle from behind a rock. I didn't have to think twice about high-tailing it outta there! On the flip side, it was a lovely hike.

Strawberry Peak  Sucess!

Started from Red Box to Strawberry-Lawlor saddle. Nice up and downs to Strawberry summit. Did Lawlor on the way back to Red Box. Many steep sections and nasty yuccas on the descent from Lawlor.

Lawlor to Strawberry  Sucess!

Done about 4 times  Sucess!

Love the climb up from Colby Canyon. Last time made it a loop going around the trails around the north side on the return. Very nice area.

w/Lawlor  Sucess!

Hiked from Colby Canyon, fun and too short easy scramble, dropped down and back up to bag Lawlor since the trip to Strawberry was so short, then back to Strawberry and out Colby Canyon. Smokin' hot day. Saw a few rattlers and got shook up pretty good when I got warned by a 3.5 footer <4ft away.

Too hot, but a fun scramble up the west ridge nonetheless.

Colby Canyon  Sucess!

The yucca stuck me a couple of times. Cool 3rd class scramble near the top of the peak. Did with cbuelow and Tom.

Colby Canyon  Sucess!

2x - Tagged it with Ol' Walsher and Tom. Nice little scramble, but it was completely socked in with a marine layer. Good thing I've enjoyed the view before.

Strawberry Peak Trail Run  Sucess!

I startred my trail run at the Red Box trailhead. Summited pretty quickly and then continued 15 mile loop.

Rock Climb  Sucess!

Climbed the North Face via a route called Strawberry Roam that was climbed by the Mendenhalls back in 1936. I had a topo that Ruth Mendenhall had scribbled down and a short route description. The climbing was OK and the rock was loose in sections. Tried a route up the direct center of the North Face earlier in the day but was stopped by difficult climbing in a shallow dihedral. Excellent day of climbing.

Good Hike  Sucess!

From Red box. I started at 7am before it got too hot, passed a lot of people on the way back down. Great hike!

Snow on the Summit  Sucess!

It was 72 in my hometown Monrovia but there was lingering snow patches on the summit. Just a perfect day. It really is one of the most rewarding summits in the San Gabriels.

Great day - great hike  Sucess!

Hiked from Red Box with my wife and the two kids. Great last mile up to the peak. Gorgeous day with views from the top all the way to the ocean.
