I was always told to set my goals high, therefore I have a 13 peak loop planned for Sept. 29th in the Mount Baldy Area. I am adding Pine and Dawson to the previously done 11 peak loop. Anyone is welcome to join us on this ambitious attempt.

http://www.outdoorsclub.org/Calen...cID=&area=&Date=9/29/2007

I am not sure if anyone will be able to complete it, but it will be fun trying. There are many bailout options so I figure it is an OK trip to post on ODC.

Anyone know how to go about getting permits for the Cucamonga Area? I didn't relaize we needed them but when I did Baldy and the 3T's a ragner asked me for the permit.

After a bit of a reality check on Sunday, I have decided that I personally am not going to go for all 13 peaks. I am going to drop Pine and Dawson and start 1 hour later at 5 pm. Of course any of you can attempt the original 13, this hike is totally open to do what you please.

So the plans are to meet at 5 am at Icehouse Canyon trailhead. Then we will leave a couple cars there and shuttle up to Manker Flats to start our hike around 5:15 am. By Dropping Pine and Dawson peaks from the loop, we will eliminate 5 miles and 3000 ft gain, making the total a more realistic (at least for me) 25 miles and 10,000 ft gain.

Anyone is welcome to join us,

Travis

Travis, I hear you didn't make it because you got a Yucca in your foot.
You O.K? Ran into the group on the way down from Timber Mtn ..

Yeah, I am really pissed. I was ignoring the yucca thorn in hopes it would work it way out, but during my warmup hike it got really sore and swollen. It was starting to get infected. I finally got it out today, had to soak the area is salt water and dug it out with a pin and tweezers. If I wasn't able to get it out I was going to go to urgent care.

I am waiting for update from those who went, hopefully they made it all the way,

Travis

Travis -- that sucks! But it's good to hear that you got the thing out. I had a hike curtailed by a yucca stabbing once, but it was not as major an outing. Still -- there'll be other days! Good luck! Embarassed Razz

Saw them going down from Timber Mtn to the Saddle around 1-2pm.
They were in good spirits. Hope they're well.

On the way back I passed a Hiker who deceased 10 min up from the parking lot.
Somber sight seeing 20 Firemen and a sleeping bag covering the body while they waited for SAR to extricate the body.

I'm toasting my beer now in memory of that unknown hiker.

I heard an update from the 3 hikers who managed to complete the 11 peaks. Here is the brief e-mail I recieved.

"Jack, Kevin and I (Lee) did the hike on Saturday and had a pleasant outing. I'm not sure what the others did; we never saw them. We had cold, windy weather early in the morning on Baldy, followed by the usual calm, mild, and hazy conditions the rest of the day."

11 peaks in total, 13.5 hours. No pics, camera broke.

Mt Baldy Visitor Center hours are flexible.

Forest Service web site says 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Ranger who answered phone today says 8 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
Ranger who worked last weekend says 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In other words, flexible.
