San Gorgonio Climbing Notes

Shawn from UNITED STATES writes:

Jacob, <br/> <br/>With respect...if, over the last 200 years, every single avalanche fatality in California occurred on San Gorgonio, your estimates might come close. <br/> <br/>While I appreciate anyone that takes the time to post (especially when promoting safety), your comments regarding the &quot;thousands of people&quot; killed on the mountain are wildly inaccurate. Over the past 50 years California has averaged 10 fatalities per year. A vast majority (over 90%) of those are on/near Mt. Shasta or in the Sierra backcountry. 5 out of those 10 are typically due to snowmobiles triggering avalanches. <br/> <br/>San Gorgonio can be a dangerous place and should be treated as such. I&#39;m not suggesting otherwise, but by following a few simple rules you can enjoy the mountain quite safely. It&#39;s not Russian Roulette up there. <br/>1. Call the ranger station and get the conditions <br/>2. Bring the right gear <br/>3. Know how to use the gear! <br/>4. Check the weather <br/>5. Check the avalanche forecast <br/>6. (100% most important rule...you&#39;ll live a nice long happy mountaineering life if you just stick to it.) KNOW when to turn around and call it quits. The mountain isn&#39;t going anywhere. Head back to town, take a few pictures, have a beer and plan your next attempt. 20 feet from the summit, but blocked by 4 feet of slick ice that you can&#39;t get around? Throw a rock at the summit and call it a day! <br/> <br/>Again Jacob, no offense meant.
