Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

 

About Your Experience:

"On Memorial Day Weekend, I successfully completed the Adventure 16 Three Peaks Challenge. I started up Mount San Jacinto via the Devil's Slide and Pacific Crest Trails on May 25-26. My Boy Scout Troop 782 also did San Jacinto and camped near Tahquitz Peak as part of their training for Philmont. Next, I climbed Mount San Gorgonio via the Vivian Creek Trail on Sunday. Finally I summited Mount San Antonio (Mount Baldy) up the Baldy Bowl/Ski Hut Trail and down the Devil’s Backbone Trail. On the way down, I went up Mount Harwood as well."

Challenge Highlight:

"The highlight of the 3 peaks challenge for me was being able to climb the first peak, Mt. San Jacinto, with my Boy Scout Troop and all my friends."
