Bob Burd's California Travels

Last Updated: Tue Sep 27 21:27:01 2016

While I still favor the Sierra Nevada, I can no longer claim to only stray now and then. I'm running out of the higher peaks in the Sierra, so I end up rambling about other parts of California as well as nearby states. If you're interested in a particular peak, they are listed in chronological order below, but not all peak names appear if you try to do a search. There is an alphabetized list below that has all of the peaks listed, just select the letter of interest. Almost all of my hiking/scrambling/climbing involves dayhikes of varying durations, some more than 20hrs in length. This is all part of a somewhat haphazard effort to show that any peak in California can be dayhiked given enough determination. That, and I happen to like hiking - a lot. :-)

You're claiming to have climbed Hollenbeck's Rock at night? In t-shirts?Seriously? And you found a crushed beer can and snack wrappers at 10:00 o'clock P.M.? And you could see Casa de Fruta from up there too?
I've been up there, during the day and I call B.S. It's only around 1100 ft high and it's extremely tough to hike during the day - much less by the light of the moon. The only thing I think you've done is to get poor old Anonymous all roused up. He thinks he's going to shoot somebody - what a sap.
