Donnie, Lloydie and Dava reached the mountain in the car late at night, and decided to take off at dawn. After breakfast we left the parked car, grabbed our gear and began our climb, up and up we went..
We finally summited after a couple “thwarted” winter attempts in deep snow.
It was a long day, after about 11 hours from car to summit to camp (low camp at 8k).
5500 ft elevation gain.
It was Beautiful!
Next time, we’ll stay on the summit,
Come with us to experience the spirit of Southern California’s tallest peak.
