Mendenhall Peak


By: Gabriele Rau

Sierra Club LPC Hike

Gordon Lindberg and Gabriele Rau Leaders

To our surprise we had 16 people on this hike! We met 8:00 Diamond Bar and 9:00 at La Canada on a Saturday. Drive about 15 miles on I-210, Osborne Street, then past Wildlife Way Station to Dillon Divide Saddle. Maybe car shuttle necessary because of limited parking. It took us 2 Ĺ hours up, several fast hikers had to slow down. One person had difficulties on the sliding poor road leading to the peak. It was cold on the summit! Nobody signed in since last year. Down: 2 hours, back at the cars at 3:00 (start at 10 AM, short lunch). Uneventful hike

Afterwards Gordon, Bob and I went to the HPS banquet. Donít schedule a hike on banquet day again! We changed there. Good program by Kurt Wedberg on Mt. Everest.
