San Jacinto Peak

5 December 1969

By: Sid Davis


On Friday, December 5, Ken Smith, California State Ranger, and I started up Mt. San Jacinto. It had snowed on the previous day so the mountain was without footprints, and was certainly a beautiful sight.

When we reached the peak, I signed in for my 100th ascent of Mt. San Jacinto -- the 66th ascent this year -- over 1100 miles and over 250,000 feet (47 miles) of elevation gain.
