Whale Peak, Granite Peak


By: Bob Bear


This trip found Toni Gamero leading some 20 of us on climbs of Whale and Granite Peaks in ANZA DESERT STATE PARK over the week-end of April 7-8. The weatherman treated us to swell weather to compensate for providing insufficient moisture for anything like the usual display of Spring flowers. We had the pleasure of the Randall Henderson's company at our campfire. The climbs were easy halfday affairs just suited for starting one's 1951 climbing season. Of course, we were encroaching on 100 Peaks territory, even though the two peaks were definitely desert-type.
