Ive always done this peak with cool people
After hiking up Timber Mtn earlier in the morning and immediately bailing on our original plans to tag a bunch of HPS peaks (fresh snow and cold temperatures), Bob and I settled on this as a consolation hike in the afternoon. Hiked along Sunset Ridge from Cow Canyon Saddle, continuing along the ridge for a way before hoofing it back along Glendora Ridge Road. Views were mostly obscured by the haze. Not the greatest weekend.
I have climbed this mountain more times then I remember. First time was up the firebreak in heavy clouds. On top I met socal hiking legend Sam Fink! He's been to the top over a 100 times! Anyways this was my first mountain and it started the whole obsession.
Took just 1 hr. 20 minutes to do this roundtrip from Cow Canyon Saddle. For the short distance and modest elevation gain(3 miles and 1300 feet of gain), you get a lot of bang for your buck in views from the top.
