What we're about

If you don't have the attitude then you won't make the altitude!

A group of people who love the outdoors - particularly large hills that some call mountains.

We love to spend time exploring the wilderness because we know freedom lies within the moment.

Call us individuals who like to take the trail less traveled... Actually, that's a bit cliche... but whatever you get the drift.

SOME QUICK INFO ABOUT SOCAL MOUNTAINEERS

Some of the treks are going to be tough. This group is not for someone who is just beginning to explore the wilderness. This doesn't mean that you're completely excluded it just means get out there, get some experience first and come join us in the future. Experience is a must not only for your safety but others. Please be honest with what you've done and what you're comfortable doing.

Backpacking gear and rock/ice climbing gear is beneficial for particular adventures. Planning, safety, teamwork, and having a blast is key.

Oh, and if you don't know what The North Face is then this may be the wrong group for you...kidding...but seriously.

*Please no flakes, drama, spamming or disrespectful behavior*

White Mountain via Cross Country Route
Needs a date and time

Location visible to members

This trip will be totally dependent on snowfall. As it stands right now, the particular route we have in mind isn't worth the time/effort/drive. NOTE: This WILL NOT be the standard hiking trail from Barcroft Facility. Until we get more some snowfall, I'll be leaving this meet-up as sort of "placeholder". I expect this trip will be a "GO", sometime in March. If you are interested, please add yourself to the waitlist and I'll fine tune the details as weather/snow improves and keep everybody abreast of trip. Details to follow.
