Telegraph Peak (California) Climbing Notes

Temecula_Dan from UNITED STATES writes:

Hiked 11/22/22 solo. Started early at Icehouse Canyon and went up Timber, Telegraph, Thunder and North Thunder in absolutely awesome weather with no wind. Some ice but mainly snow to Timber so no micro spikes, just careful poled steps where necessary. Put on micro spikes on the way to Telegraph with very little post holing but then had to break out the ice axe because of semi-frozen snow sluffs taking out the trail up/down Telegraph. There just wasn’t a trail on the steeper slope traverses. Didn’t need to break out the crampons but if you don’t use an axe, you’re going to need them with poles.

Once off Telegraph, bare hiking boots/shoes are good enough. Completed the loop by walking down the Baldy Ski access road and then Mount Baldy Road back to Icehouse Canyon. Very adventurous and fun hike!
