How to find us

We'll be the grizzled group of sleepy, coffee swilling people milling around their cars with that far away look in our eyes and the steely determination to get up on top of a few good peaks.

Details

I: Throop Peak (9,138’), Mount Burnham (8,997’), Mount Baden-Powell (9,399’), Ross Mountain (7,402): Join us on this very strenuous, but slow-paced hike through the heart of the San Gabriel Mountains for a total of 15 roundtrip miles and 4,900’ of gain, 2,700’ of which we’ll get on our way out. We’ll start from Dawson Saddle and get our first three peaks as we travel northeast along the Pacific Crest Trail to the summit of Mt Baden-Powell. From there we’ll leave the PCT to travel cross country along Baden-Powell’s southern ridgeline and descend 2,300’ over steep, loose, and brushy terrain to the summit of Ross Mountain far below us. From Ross we’ll have to re-gain the 2,300’ we lost coming in by climbing back up to the summit of Baden-Powell, from there we’ll return along the PCT back to our cars at Dawson Saddle. Expect a long, full day of hiking. Not suitable for beginners or the faint of heart. Email Mat Kelliher at [masked] with recent conditioning and experience for trip status and details.
