2018 GROUP HIKES

 Condor Peak via Trail Canyon (West Ridge) - Ben's Route | Sunday, January 28th, 2018
Condor Peak Group Hike via Trail Canyon (West Ridge) | TRVRS APPAREL

Join us for our next group hike! We will summit Condor Peak (5,460 ft) via its west ridge, starting at Trail Canyon trail head which is located right off of Big Tujunga canyon road and north Trail Canyon road. The peak overlooks much of the Tujunga Canyon Reservoir and much of the Angeles Forest that most people don't see. This route was first shown to us by TRVRS Ambassador Ben Broer.

The approach to the mostly dry falls and Condor's west ridge is 2 miles (with roughly 1000 feet of gain) of fire road and defined single track before turning east toward the peak. At this point, the route turns 'use trail' with some mild shrubs surrounding its path. 

The remaining 3 miles to the peak are steep, climbing about 3,200 additional feet before topping out at Condor Peak for some epic ridge line scrambles. If you are thinking about coming out to this, just be ready for some relatively easy scrambling and steep climbs. BRING A BEER!

When can we expect to be finished? 
We will most likely finish around 12:00 PM. 

What should I bring?
Please dress comfortably but bring warm layers for the cold weather above 5,400 feet (sub 45 degrees Fahrenheit). I.e. Gloves, beanie, down jacket, wind breaker, etc.

Bring snacks and a lunch, as well as plenty of water to stay hydrated.

AND of course, bring a beer to share at the peak. Its part of our culture to bring a beer to the summit to celebrate the accomplishment of climbing a mountain. DO NOT bring more than one unless you plan on sharing. We do not intend to climb down a exposed technical route while inebriated. Just really happy. 


SEE YOU OUT THERE!
