Ascent Trip ReportStarted early at Eaton Saddle. Hit the saddle San Gabriel Peak shares with Markham and then over to its other shared with Mount Disappointment. Up Disappointment, skipping summit views and down its forested ridge to its saddle with Mount Deception. Saw all I could see upon Deception, fueled up with a breakfast burrito, headed back down to the service road and followed it back up to Disappointment to catch the views this time. Took in the views and continued on over to San Gabriel Peak. Was on my hikers high now and flew up the switchback to SGP, had lunch, and headed back to Eaton Saddle. All in all ~ 6 miles, 2800' gain, in 4.5 hours.
