Ascent Trip Report

i picked a friday for this hike to avoid the crowds. there would be a dozen or so parties en route. i kept repassing the same people after i took the side-trips to the minor peaks along the way (stats include all of the side-trips).

at the summit were some seasoned local hikers, i spent time chatting with them. one of them gave me a good tip on using marion mountain trail for san jacinto, which became my plan for the next day.

views were great.

on the way down i bumped into Seuk Doo Kim. he insisted i search for the above article to learn more about him. from what i understand he climbs baldy very regularly, and has climbed it more than 1000 times. i'll be happy if i'm still climbing mountains at his age!
