Went up via the fire road and down the north ridge. Way too hot.
Spent many moment standing in the nude on this one. Call me what you will. I don't care and you can EaT iT. I done the fire-break and the road numerous times.
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.
