Anyone know the current conditions of Cucamonga? Was looking to do it this weekend to bag my second of the Six Peaks.
I don’t own microspikes, crampons, or an ice axe, just trekking poles.
There is still snow, but I think you can get by (carefully) without microspikes. Trekking poles would be recommended, in my opinion.
Paul O. hiked this on May 7th: https://socalhiker.net/2016-six-pack-of-peaks-wall-of-fame/entry/3909/
We are hiking Cucamonga Peak tomorrow and can give you a detailed description thereafter. If you go on the weekend plan to get there early cause the parking fills up quickly.
Went up today (5/24/16). No snow but pretty cold. Overcast. Parking lot was almost filled at 1:00pm on a Tuesday.
