TRIP REPORT – Friday, July 4, 2014

Sierra Club – HPS July 4th Jamboree. Hike leaders - Peter and Ignacia Doggett. Gathered at the La Canada Rideshare on Hwy 2 at 7:00 AM on Friday, 7/14/14. Rode with Peter and Ignacia up to Dawson Saddle (7,901’). After an orientation and introductions by Peter and Ignacia with 8-hiking participants, we hiked up an aggressive (25%-35% Grade) .5 mile trail to Mt. Lewis (8,396’) arriving at the summit at 9:00 AM. We hiked back down, jumped into the cars and drove to the next trailhead. Climbed to Kratka Ridge (7,515’) reaching the summit at 10:00 AM. Drove to next trailhead to climb Mt. Akawie (7,283’) reaching the summit at 11:00 AM. Drove to Cloud Burst Summit (7,108’) and had lunch by the roadside. We then climbed Winston Peak (7,502’), reaching the summit by 12:23 PM. Then climbed west to Winston Ridge (7,003’), reaching the summit 1:14 PM. We then hiked back to the cars at Cloud Burst Summit. We drove south on Hwy. 2 to a trailhead to climb Mt. Hillyer (6,200), passing lots of Poodle-dog bushes, reaching the summit by 3:15 PM. We skipped Vetter Mtn. because the gate was closed and we didn’t want to walk up the 3.8 mile access road. We then drove to a trailhead across the road and climbed Mt. Mooney (5,840’) reaching the summit by 4:30 PM. We drove further south on Hwy. 2 to a trailhead for Mt. Sally (5,408’) reaching the summit by 5:30 PM. We then drove up the Mt. Wilson service road just short of the top to the trailhead to climb Occidental Peak (5,732’) reaching the summit 7:30 PM. Once we returned to the car, we drove up to the high point for Mt. Wilson (5,710’) and tagged a tree at 8:15 PM. We then returned to the La Canada rideshare point at 8:45 PM. The weather was beautiful throughout the day and no hotter than mid-80’s with a cool breeze day for most of the day.

Participants: Peter, Ignacia, Paul, Dave, Shannon, Mike, Catherine Rossback, Kathy Rich.
