Rattlesnake Peak

25 April 1971

By: Al Campbell


Leaders: Bernie Petitjean, Al Campbell

44 "strenuous" peakbaggers showed up at 8:30 am at East Fork Guard Station to go "Rattlesnaking." Bernie had selected a beautiful route utilizing the road out of Heaton Flats and a new road under construction on the opposite side of San Gabriel River. After leaving the road, we followed the fire break and "trail" up to the top. Only one person didn't make the peak. You might say that, for most of the day, the peak was "out of sight". After a short lunch and rest at the top, headed back for the cars. We were alternately in rain, wind, snow, thunder and lightning. Got back to the cars slightly wet but in good shape about 4:00 pm. Very successful trip and very good route.
