Ascent Trip Report

What more can be added to this often-climbed peak? All roads lead to Rome or in this case trails and San Jacinto. After the minor bump known as Miller Peak, we made our way up the well-trod trail to the highest peak in Riverside County, an ultra-prominent peak named San Jacinto. It would be our 2nd of 6 peaks for the day and the only peak where we encountered other humans. We took a few pictures, drank some water and got out of there as quickly as possible. Sadly, this great giant was our least favorite peak of the day due to the throngs of humanity atop it... We went straight down the ridge to Folly Peak next. Pics from the whole weekend.
