te-wa and I started this hike at 3:00am in t- shirts and temps in the 60s. We ended our hike 2 miles from San Jacinto Peak surrounded by blizzard conditions! Our attempt to summit came during the 3rd snowstorm of the week.
I am delighted we got as far as we did but both of us are experienced enough to know when to it isn't safe to continue, so we didn't! Fighting the snow, ice. 40mph winds and mid 20 temps made that summit less appealing than it was several hours earlier when sweat was rolling down my back. Perhaps another day?
