Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Dave Taylor, Bill Simpson, Mat Kelliher

Dave Taylor led us on a fun and fast-paced hike to the Seven Summits around and including Mt Wilson. We started out by setting up a car shuttle at the JPL Trail south of Red Box Gap and Eaton Saddle. We then came in from Eaton Saddle and got Mt Markham, then Mt Lowe, then over and up to San Gabriel Peak, over to Mt Disappointment, then on to Mt Deception. From Deception we followed the road for a bit before getting off trail to join up with the JPL Trail and down to shuttle vehicles. We then drove up to Eaton Saddle, where we dropped one of our group who wanted to sign out off at his car, then continued up to the radio towers below Occidental Peak. We hiked on a really good use trail to Occidental, then returned to our cars for a drive up to the Mt Wilson parking lot. We hiked up to the summit at the Pavilion and then returned to our cars.

About 9 miles for the loop of the first five peaks, with 3,150' of gain.
About 2 RT miles for Occi, with about 800' of gain.
Drive up with about 100 yards of walking for Mt Wilson.
