San Gorgonio Climbing Notes

Jakob Bailey from UNITED STATES writes:

Watch for the steep slopes of San Gorgonio especially during the winter because you can slip and fall off cliffs of over a 3,000 ft. drop. San Gorgonio is my most favorite mountain peak of all because of the weather and how much snow it gets because I am a really big fan of snow. The temperatures during the summer can reach up to 50 degrees while during the winter it normally reaches up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, listen and check to see if there is an avalanche danger signaled for the mountain because it has been known to have deadly avalanches that has killed thousands of people. So, make sure to pack warm gear and pack lots of food. Don't pack to much food as it can lead to exhaustion faster and tiredness and also can make it hard to breathe faster, especially at the higher elevations. Hope this climbing note comes into handy and helps you out on your hiking trip.
