Sawmill Mountain, Grouse Mountain, Cerro Noroeste, Mount Pinos

26 July 1969

By: Paul Lipsohn

Leader: Paul Lipsohn
Asst.: Ray Redheffer

Blue skies and rapidly rising temperatures greeted a steadily growing group that ultimately totaled 68 hikers. After consolidating cars and a lengthy caravan to the parking area near Mt. Pinos summit, we began the short downhill hike to Sawmill Mtn., arriving there in about 45 minutes. Following the usual summit refueling break we continued along the ridge to Grouse Mtn. through a nice stand of pines and cedars. At Grouse, 16 hikers decided to return to the cars, while the remainder continued to Cerro Noroeste and lunch. Our return trip retraced the same route, with the group climbing to the relay station to claim Mt. Pinos via a non drive-up route. Congratulations to Elizabeth Cohen were in store in honor of her 100th peak, which we celebrated in the traditional manner.

Our 56 peakbaggers concluded the 7-hour round trip with an early departure for home after a day well spent.
