Headache  Sucess!

Memo to self: Do not attempt to hike the last 1500 ft elevation at max exertion. Ended up with a pounding headache and no desire to eat!

End of Nine Peaks  Sucess!

Used this trail to get back to the car after hiking the nine peaks ending at San G. Remember it being a very steep descent. Maybe it was just the full overnight packs.

Our team of three made it about a mile before High Creek when Jeff's hip flexer couldn't take the pain any longer. We're hoping to go back to summit in a few weeks.

Yah!  Sucess!

Although, I can never get over how long and gradual those switchbacks are...

Vivian Creek  Sucess!

Hiked with (behind) Rick Kent and MikeSash. Summit was sunny but very cold and windy. Nobody spent much time there, including myself. But I was alone on top of S CA for 11 minutes.

1st Time on Gorgonio  Sucess!

Great day, cold summit. I learned what it meant to lose your big toenail shortly after. A memorable hike in many ways.

New Years @ High Camp

Got beaten down by a huge storm so everyone at high camp including me bailed. I will be back!
No place I would rather be than a mountaintop on New Years, sure beats a party with a room full of drunk strangers.. heehee

After the snow earlier in the week

I left the parking lot at 6:30AM. I lost the trail just after the falls before the switchbacks about 1-2 miles from the peak. There was only a single set of tracks, which I assumed followed the real switchbacks, but they did not. They led me farther east than I needed to be. The conditions were great: sunny, not too much wind, nice powder. Crampons were a must after the falls. The falls were partially frozen which made for some breath taking wall trickling from the icicles. Even though I didn't make it to the peak, it was a beautiful hike.

Summit via Vivian Creek  Sucess!

I lead a group of friends up the Vivian Creek Trail. We summitted at 1 pm whereupon it started to snow. On the way down, we got pelted by rain and disconcerted by a thunder and lightning show. This is not to say it wasn't a great outing.
