Moonlight hike  Sucess!

Took the ski lift up to Mt. Baldy notch in the late afternoon and started hiking around 6 pm. Bagged Thunder Mountain on the way up, watched the sunset from this peak, and hiked back to the ski lift under the bright moonlight (a headlamp would be nice but not necessary that night). There's a downed tree blocking the trail that you have to crawl under, and there's a summit sign at the top of Telegraph.

The altitude of this peak is a bit unclear - the summit sign states an elevation of 8,901 ft, which is the same as the 2713m stated on OpenStreetMap. However, the elevation is listed as 8,985 ft on this site and a few other websites.

Nice little peak  Sucess!

Took the Three T's from Baldy Notch/Thunder. Loved the feeling of solitude and picturesque dwarf tree amidst the summit boulders. Did not enjoy the smell of poop some hiker had left.

Three Ts  Sucess!

Sometime in 2002, I'm guessing. Cool peak that is relatively inaccessible compared to other more popular peaks in the area.

3 Tees from Icehouse  Sucess!

Out and back from Icehouse Canyon. Blustery day, but the fog and rain didn't quite come in until 1pm. Great views all around, but with the cold wind, I didn't spend a ton of time on top. Summit register could use a replacement if anyone's got an extra ammo can and notebook laying around.

Best Hike out of Ice House  Sucess!

All the peaks from Ice House are nice but this is probably my favorite one...there's some bouldering along the trail too!
