Climber's trail  Sucess!

From Humber Park, took the climber's trail to the base of Suicide Rock, then stayed on the trail until it met the main trail. Light class 2 on the way. Passed several climbing parties doing their thing.

Great day for a hike  Sucess!

Pretty straight forward hike. Looks much more difficult coming up the face.

First Time Here   Sucess!

Oh my! I hadn't been hiking in several weeks due to a mountain biking injury and the first part of this hike kicked my butt. A great trail that was surprisingly peaceful at 9:30am. Most of the hikers didn't show up until the afternoon. We're usually the late hikers...but this time we actually got up early-ish and it paid off. We snagged a great spot at the top to have lunch and the view was rewarding!

1st climb Tabby Treat  Sucess!

Took climbing lesson from the shop in town along with a few other explorer scouts.
Within a couple more years climbing became my life and I visited Suicide, Tahquitz, or Joshua Tree hundreds of times through the late 80's.
Climbed nearly all established routes within my ability (5.10-5.11) at Suicide.
A few of my favorites I did multiple times including Sundance, Ten Carrot Gold, Serpentine, Hair Lip, Miscalculation, and Flower of High Rank.

Surprise  Sucess!

First time up Suicide. I've looked at it from across the valley for years but never made it over there being always focused on Tahquitz. Decided Surprise would be a good first route. Easy approach and a great slab to crack! It was also cool to stand at the base of Valhalla and check it out.

Fun  Sucess!

Did this as a small child and later as an adult. Very cool.

Relatively easy with great views of clouds below Idyllwild. Then they came up and everything was covered in fog...

Climber's Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up the climber's trail then met the main summit trail at the saddle and continued to the summit. Climbed after both Sam Fink and Lily Rock earlier in the day.

From Deer Springs  Sucess!

Nice and gradual ascent. You hardly notice the vertical. Great views. Rested, and had a snack at the nice open area at the edge, then went the extra feet for the summit register. Perfect weather.

Nice Getaway  Sucess!

Daddy-daughter peak number two on this day via the climber's trail. We enjoyed the quiet trail through the woods and incredible views from the top.

Razors Edge  Sucess!

Razors edge (5.9 R) was my introduction to rock climbing in 1993. Only one pitch, but a very nerve racking, wafer thin flake for a newbie to tackle. Awesome!

Couple climbs  Sucess!

Guilotine and Grahm Crackers. Both went well. Guilotine was hard for the grade at the chimney part. Not real experienced with chimneys though.
