So the way i heard about the six pack of peaks challenge was through my oldest brother. I thought it was an awsome idea! He mention his buddy’s always hike san Jacinto so it gave me the idea to plan a hike. I ended up planing a three day camping trip. We camped out at the headquarters one night and statted early at seven. Before planing i didnt do much research on anything and just planned.. so me thinking we were all tough guys i chose deer springs trail and we were going to camp at little round valley after we reached the peak. So we started and about half way realized we were not going to make it… then we decided to not camp and stash our heavy ass back packs some were and climb the last mile.. both my brothers gave up probably 100 yards from the the shelter cabin. Didnt make it… this year was different lighter packs different trail! And success!!!
