I'm Sore!  Sucess!

Gained West Ridge via game trail off Vivian Creek trail and somewhat enjoyed the steep ascent. It never lets up! Summitted in less than 4 hours with some knee-deep post-holing and also skipping along frozen stryofoam near the summit. Favorite moments - watching a falcon soar by, and visiting with Chickadees. DONE! Not doing this one again.

Worth Repeating  Sucess!

I don't remember the exact date, but I do remember that it was in spring with lots of consolidated snow. We continued from Dobbs to San Gorgonio and were quite tired by then.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Mike Ostby and I started from the Vivian Creek T/H shortly after 7am and ascended Dobbs' west ridge. Got to the summit by 11am or so. Tagged East Dobbs Peak first before heading off to Jepson Peak next. Finished off with San Gorgonio getting there by ~ 1:30pm. Left San G's summit around 2:30pm via Vivian Creek trail and were back at the car by ~ 6:30pm. A fun loop!

Dobbs West Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked a few years back. Meet friends Miguel, Alex, Steven, Mark and Dave at the summit who hiked up a different route (South Ridge). We all came down via Dobbs West Ridge. Needed snow shoes.

Climbed Dobbs Peak 2/4/2009 with Miguel Forjan. Continued on to summit Jepson and San Gorgonio. Down Vivian Creek Trail.

Rare Sept. Storm  Sucess!

Went up this ridge to the summit in the midst of heavy rain, then hail and light snow. It was in the 20's and we had icicles all over us.
