Ascent of Mount Deception on 2011-11-25
|Date:||Friday, November 25, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5796 ft / 1766 m|
Ascent Trip ReportAn extraordinarily beautiful day following Thanksgiving and a day off work was the perfect occasion to hit the trail. I started the hike at 9:45 ascending south on the JPL Trail near the junction of Mt. Wilson Road and the road to Mt. Disappointment. It’s a beautiful trail. Arrive at Mt. Disappointment at 10:52. Hit San Gabriel Peak at 12:13. Doubled back to the road and followed the road to a climbers’ route up the east ridge of Mt. Deception and peaked out at 2:13. Significant damage from the 2009 Station Fire dominated the hike, although the section from the trailhead to the San Gabriel/Disappointment saddle was mostly untouched by the fire. Finished the hike at 3:31.
