Galena Peak

Galena Peak Professional Review and Guide

"At 9324 feet, Galena Peak is the tallest and most dramatic summit on the long Yucaipa Ridge. Its north face has been carved into soaring buttresses and forbidding ravines. After a fresh coat of snow in the spring, Galena Peak looks like it could have been transported to Southern California from the Swiss Alps. Moreover, Galena Peak provides fantastic views of San Gorgonio Mtn. The steep and crumbling rock on the north face is too dangerous to climb directly, so the peak is best reached from the Mill Creek Jumpoff via the northeast ridge. Even so, this is a strenuous and challenging cross-country hike. It follows Mill Creek’s channel for several miles, so the route is best avoided during times of high water."
