Peak 4377. We found it by accident during a trip to Joshua Tree in 1990. It was a magical trip that I may retrofit to this blog some day, if I go back and find the photos from it.
This post was rewritten in March 2013.
In February 2009, nearly 20 years later, Reamo and I decided to relive some of the "Era of the Soups" and headed to to JT for the weekend. Slick couldn't make it, but he was there in spirit. We were able to see the petroglyphs near Barker Dam, the Hidden Valley Trail, the tour of Keys Ranch, Key's View and the Lost Horse Mine trail.
We also climbed up to Peak 4377, which we dubbed Mount Zip It in 1990.
It is a ~1,300 foot nearly vertical climb up to a peak, which involves a lot of rock scrambling. We were able to find our entries from 1990. I am amazed they are still there after all these years. We couldn't find any other entries, though. I have been to the top 6 times now. Reamo and I got up and down in 3 and 1/2 hours. Not too bad for a couple of old guys.
We had a great time and will definitely do it again.
