And our exploration of SoCal peaks continue, now with San Gorgonio mountain. A grueling 19 mile 6000AEG trail to its summit from Vivian Creek trail.
This mountain compared with Mt. Baldy nearby sees very little traffic due to its daily permit limit. We started at 545AM followed the jeep road for the first 1/4 mile or so until we reached the almost dry Mill Creek, from this very spot just cross the river and you will see the trail sign......we made the mistake of going up the creek 1.5 miles and had to backtrack, it sucked but we marched on and made it to the summit at about noon, stayed about 20 minutes then quickly made our descent and made it back to the TH at 345PM.
It was a great hike with great views once we got close to the tree line and above. There are a few dispersed camp spots along the way up but they also require a backcountry permit.

Fun times checking out the cave, it sucks the walls are spray painted all over the place. Picked up a couple garbage bags full of trash. Left the place as clean as we could.

After hitting up Peppersauce Cave we proceeded to drive up Mt Lemmon Rd up to the Wilderness of Rocks TH. The cloudy skies and sounds of thunder above us made the short hike very enjoyable. Found a huge campsite with the creek nearby at about 3.25 mile mark, the tree cover and hoodoos nearby made it for a very scenic place. After setting up camp we headed out above the rock formations under a magnificent double rainbow and storms all around.....but nowhere near us. It was a sight to behold. The next morning we woke up early but took our time having breakfast, and made it back to the parking lot at around 11AM, we then headed out towards Tucson and hit up Barrio Brewery for some grub and beer. The perfect ending to another great weekend!

Summer is one of those seasons that everytime one gets the chance to get out of Phoenix it is always a welcomed proposition!
This past weekend we headed out to Mount San Antonio (Mt. Baldy,CA). After getting off work at 5PM our group of 9 hikers met and quickly drove out of town. It was nice knowing we didnt have to take a big detour out of the way off the I-10 going west.
The road heading up Mt. Baldy was as fun as it can get, lots of curves and tight turns all the way up to the TH. Once we arrived at around midnight, we quickly gathered and had a couple IPAs before going to sleep for the night and early wake up call on saturday morning. At 715AM we started our hike up the mountain, surrounded by many other hikers,.....it is quite the popular hike up to the summit. On our way up we lost Lucie and Kyle and ended up doing the loop clockwise, while Lucie and Kyle went the opposite way, both groups met at the summit and enjoyed the great vistas for about 1.5 hours. On the way up there was a small waterfall very close to the ski hut managed by the Sierra Club. The trail is quite well worn and easy to follow all the way to the top. As we continued our second half of the loop we quickly started making our way down with the goal of making it back to the trailhead by 2PM but along the way we lost 15 mins walking around the ski lodge trying to find the trail. After that small hicup we continued making our way down and made it back at 2:20PM.
After getting the whole group together we left the TH and headed to the San Jacinto area to disperse camp for the night. We ended up finding a secluded spot along the highway with a parking lot along the PCT. On sunday morning we gathered our gear and headed back home. Great success!

Finally made it to the fabulous Keet Seel on our second try! Our first chance bad weather cancelled our permits and moved it to this past weekend. On friday night we made the drive up to the Navajo National Monument. On saturday morning we started our hike down after having got the mandatory orientation presentation by the NPS. The weather was cloudy the entire weekend making the temperatures much more comfortable. That also meant we had the chance of rain showers, which they did on and off on the way in. Great views on the way down the canyon, once we reached the creek we stopped for a 5 minute break and cached water for our way back. We then continued our hike into the canyon wading through water on and off, it took us around 3:20hr/min to reach our campsite. Later in the afternoon we headed over to the Keet Seel cliff dwellings, in which our Navajo guide Max showed us while telling us the history of this place and its ancient people. The site was amazingly well preserved and was well worth the trip. The following morning we made our way out and made it out in 3:30hr/min, under very comfortable overcast skies. Very happy i got this place off my bucket list!

A few months ago in my search to continue adding to my alpine climbing resume I started looking at Mount Shasta. While doing my research I found that over 80% of all summits at Shasta happen from the Avalanche Gulch route, with that in mind I wanted a route with a lot more solitude and a bigger challenge.....with that i found the West Gully route to be just what I wanted for this adventure.
Once I decided thats what I wanted I started my search for teammates, there I thought my friend and all around badass chick Emily to be a fit despite her lack of mountaineering experience, I also found my friend TJ and his experience to be beneficial to the team. Together we tutored and mentored Emily on how to walk with crampons, use of ice axe, self arrest and roped travel.
On thursday afternoon I went to pick up our car rental and quickly headed out of town for the long 14 hour drive up to NorCal. After driving about 7 hours we made our night stop just north of Fresno leaving us only about 400 miles left to go on friday morning. At about 1PM we arrived at Mount Shasta City, a small cozy laid back hippie town {totally my style} took our time grabbing lunch while we got our rented snow shovel taken care of. Then after we started making the quick 11 mile drive to the Bunny Flat TH, there we paid our self-paid 3-day weekend permit for $25 P/P. From this spot we then started heading up Mt. Shasta under cloudy and light wind/ light rain conditions....the landscape was typical NW, lots of trees and wide expansive views. After 2 miles and 1200 ft of gain we reached Horse Camp, from there we continued making our way up to our weekend base camp at Hidden Valley, a beatiful, wide open valley located just below the steep west face of this amazing volcano. As we made our last snow field traverse the winds started picking up and only became stronger the closer we got to Hidden Valley. We took shelter from the cold 50+ MPH winds behind a rock and waited there for about 45 minutes trying to decide our options. Not only after the winds died down a bit we decided to hunt for a suitable campsite to be able to pitch under the still windy conditions......I tell you, it was so much fun (NOT) shoveling a flat patch of snow and try to pitch a tent under freezing windy weather!!
About an hour later the wind completely died off and we went explore the rest of Hidden Valley and came across two good looking ski-mountaineer girls who were just pitching their tent as the sun was starting to set. Their plans were almost the same as ours, climb Shastina saturday, and Shasta on sunday.
The following morning we let the sun wake us up and took our time having breakfast under a clear wind-free morning! We got our gear together and started making our way up to Shastina, as the day went by we crossed paths with the two women ski-mountaineering, we also came across another couple day climbing with their ski touring gear as well.
As the day went on at about noon the winds and clouds started forming on both the summits of Shasta and Shastina, it was then about 500 feet from the Shastina summit when we decided to call it a day and head back to base camp, have a proper lunch and start preparing for our early morning alpine start of 230AM. It was weird being in my tent and sleeping bag already having had dinner and ready to go sleep before 5PM and setting our alarms for our 1AM wake up call.
1AM comes and the excitement quickly engulfed my mind as i made myself some oatmeal and hot cocoa. Right after breakfast we started putting our crampons on our boots and packed our day climb supplies. Exactly at 230AM we started our long and slow walk across Hidden valley where we gradually the started hitting 10, 20, 30 slopes until reaching a 45 degree slope across a gully that would take us above the Cassaval ridge and onto the 35 degree west face. I would describe this climb as being on a stairstepper machine for 5+ hours without stopping while gaining more than 4000 feet. The climb was relentless, a true test of both mental and physical stamina. One of our rewards was to be the only team climbing the west gully under a clear starry night with a full view of the Milky Way and catching glimpse of a handful of shooting stars....magical indeed!!
The sunrise beat us before we could gain the west face saddle but once we got there we had a full view of Shasta's main peak and with that a view of scores of people climbing from Avalanche gulch. Seeing this made me even more grateful we had climbed the route that we did even more. We then started making our way across the Whitney Glacier and onto Missery Hill and joined everyone else making the climb to the summit. Feeling exhausted but with my mind set on to the summit we charged our way to the top reaching the summit at 854AM. What a feeling it was to be there, the high one gets being there never gets old and is the sole reason for my alpine climbing addiction.
After signing the simmit register we started making our way down and the kid fun started......taking our crampons off and making our glissade descent back down.....if you havent glissaded down a 2000+ foot slope before.....i highly recommend, its axhilirating and was the cherry on top of this already magnificent volcano.
We got back to base camp at 1225PM and happily but tired we started taking our camp down and after an uneventful way back to Bunny Flat we got to the car just after 4PM and started our long drive back home.

On sunday morning we made the early morning hike to these great ruins. The trail was a bit muddy from the recent rains but had considerably dried since the previous day. Walking along the creek makes the hike pure joy to make. The ropes were both in great condition. It was again on the climb up that things got very slippery once again. At just under 2 hrs we arrived at the ruin site and enjoyed the view, hung in there for a while while having lunch . Soon there after we carefully started our descent, along the way we came across a nice rattlesnake basking under the sun right on the trail. I took a couple photos but the snake had other plans and quickly fled the scene. We finished in just over three hours and soon after that we started making our fun ride back into town.

This past weekend I had luck to be in the Sierra Ancha checking out these magnificent ruins. The rainy weather promised things would be interesting and special. On friday night we left town and camped at the first car camping site at the start of Cherry Creek road and waited for the forecasted storm. At about 10PM the rain started and lasted for about 5 hours, we worried whether the road would be driveable and it was, only had to make a few easy creek crossings.
The entire Sierra Ancha range was rainy and mystical clouds covered their peaks. We started our first hike under light misty rain, the whole setting was simply a sight to behold.
We passed several incredible waterfalls, the entire forest made it seem as if we were hiking somewhere in the Northwest......After almost 3 hrs we made it to the cliff dwellings, explored a little bit before relaxing and have lunch, our drenched clothes making things rather chilly.
after about an hour break we start heading back out, and headed to Cold Spring canyon. The steeper climb just below the ruin was very muddy and made things really slippery but we kept going until we made our obejective, stayed there for about 20 mins before we started making our descent. After making it back to the trucks we made the short drive back to the Devils Chasm TH and camped there for the night armed with plenty of car camping gear and plenty of food and drinks.
On sunday morning we woke up early to tackle Devils Chasm before heading back home.

Left town saturday morning with the intent to enjoy a nice couple days under the sun, swimming and breathing the fresh air.........we got most of that, saturday was mostly sunny and cold-ish but that didnt stop us from freezing our rears off and jumping in the water. Wine and beer kept us from getting hypothermic in the cold water :D
After a few hours enjoying the water and the occasional sunshine we continued on to our campsite for the night. The fun continued on and ive continued becoming more fond of sleeping out in the open with just my sleeping bag......theres just something constricting about falling asleep without being able to see the stars.
On sunday we took our time taking camp down, after a couple hours we made it back to the trailhead.

Another place taken off the bucketlist! Canyon de Chelly has always been one of those places that ive wanted to check out but for some reason just hadnt got around to go to so when the chance presented itself i jumped on it right away.
The hike started on the opposite end of the White House cliff dwelling. Our Navajo driven truck took us to an "unknown name" canyon that led us straight down to the famous Spider Rock. The weather was perfect in the morning and becoming cloudy later in the afternoon. We were led by a knowledgable Navajo guide. Our first official brake came as we reached Spider Rock, we then proceeded on crossing the creek several times and mostly following the jeep road all the way to the White House. A few miles down the trail/road we stopped for a longer snack break and went exploring to an arch formation simply known as "The Window"....the climb to it was fairly steep and very much my type of environment. After coming back down we proceeded down the canyon and after a couple hours we reached our campsite for the night at an area called "Mother Nature Canyon." We had lunch, and were able to explore around including the awesome petroglyphs nearby. We as a group planned on bringing food for a "burrito potluck".......there was plenty of food to go around and the bonfire made it for a great fun night!
The following morning we took our time getting ready as we knew we had a short hike out, on the way we came across a couple ruin sites before reaching the White House. Once we reached and enjoyed the beauty and history behind this magnificent cliff dwelling a light rain started to fall on us as we made our way up to the rim.

It was my first time on the South Kaibab trail and my first time going up the Bright Angel trail. There was not very much traffic on the morning hours on S Kaibab, we made down in just under 3 hours taking it easy enjoying the views. Once at the river we took a detour to Phantom Ranch where we stopped for 1.5 hrs, ate our early lunch and a couple beers, Lagunitas IPA in my case.
A little while later we started our ascent on the Bright Angel trail that had large amounts of people......it was a freaking zoo!! I imagine its like that all the time but being a free weekend there was probably even more than normal. I finished at 505PM, and was ready for large amounts of food. The potluck we planned was a success and our hydration options made it for a great time at our campsite.

Another perfect day in paradise! Everything went according to plan! Not very many people on the trail, having only come across 5 people total the entire day. Took the Amethyst trail detour, Amethyst spring has flowing, forming a couple small pools of water, enough for a nalgene bottle. El Oso Road was in perfect condition.

Yesterday marked my second time doing the Superstition Ridgeline. The weather was cloudy, windy and a bit chilly. Despite forecasts of rain throughout the day it only rained on us for about 30 minutes as we neared the 5057 peak area. Wind howled on us pretty much every time we were exposed on the ridge but as we walked along the north side of the mountains we received calm conditions. At around 5057 we experienced the best views of the day as a patch of low level clouds quickly made its way across it, it was magical and surreal moment that had to be captured with a camera.
