"I'd been meaning to bag this peak ever since I hear about "class 4" summit block. First peak of a six pack. I went up from the East side following HPS GPX which led right to the register under the infamous chockstone. Going down a ducked route Southwest-ish, it looked to be a funner climb with a bit of low class 3. As to whether the summit block proper, past the chockstone is actually class 4, I couldn't say. It's exposed and you could get hurt with a wrong move. On the other hand, it's really just a couple of moderate moves and that's it. I expected a chimney and really it's a small off" - JustinB, Jul 13, 2018
"Winter, snow, icey summit. Knew we couldnt get to the tippy top without climbing and it was too dangerous in conditions. But still made it to the "base" of the summit. I considered this a successful summit." - yosinalissebeck, Mar 18, 2018
"Four of us made it to the peak today. We got an early start from the Tram and crunched through the (very unusual) Mother's Day snow. Amazing how just an inch of snow can change your navigational cues!" - benjineer, May 9, 2015
"First peak of a six-peak day up on the San Jacinto Mountains. This was an HPS hike led by Peter and Ignacia Doggett. On Cornell, we went as far as the register box; since there wasn't an M-rated leader, we didn't attempt the summit block. I'll go back some day with rock climbing friends (I'm certainly not comfortable enough to do it on my own) and make it all the way some day...this peak has been beckoning me for a long time." - HikerMark, Jun 14, 2014
"This was a difficult peak. First started cross-country to the wrong summit (made the same mistake Bob Burd did). Then had to climb down (i.e. bouldering) from this sub-summit to the base of the peak. Then class 3 to the top which is marked with some ducks. Class 4 to the top of the summit block using a chockstone in a chimney. Wiped both of us out." - srphilip, Aug 4, 2012
