Hi I'm from MA and will be in the LA area this July. Im looking for info from anyone who has done the C2C with daytime temps in Palm Spring above 100'. I KNOW its very hot in July.  I know there is no water until the tram and its probably the least favorable month to climb C2C. I have been hiking for over 30 yrs. I enjoy night hiking and long distances. (My last big hike was a Grand Canyon R2R2R last Nov.) My guess is the only possible way to attempt this is to start around 12AM -1AM and carry 8L of water/fluids with major electrolyte replacement. I have a plan B if its forcasted to be too hot on the day of hike (probably will climb San G) I posted this question on another forum and was asked if this was a joke. I wouldnt waste your time or mine if it was a joke. If its not safe, I wont hike C2C.If the risks can be mittigated, then maybe I will. Thanks for your input.
