Cucamonga Peak, Bighorn Peak, Ontario Peak. 8/16/12
Went out for some peak bagging this morning, starting to prep for Zion.
Icehouse Canyon>>>Icehouse Saddle (7555′)>>>Cucamonga Peak (8859′)>>>Bighorn Peak (8441′) via XC east ridge>>>Ontario Peak (8693′)>>>Icehouse Saddle and return.
~16 miles, about 5000′ gain.
East ridge of Bighorn peak from approach to Cucamonga. The sheep have done a fine job creating some trails here.

Bighorn just shy of Bighorn Peak.
“Bighorn don’t attack people…Do bighorn attack people?”
…Visions of getting ram-jammed and a crushed ribcage…
Had to circumnavigate the peak to get around them. They weren’t too worried about me, I got within 20 meters.
