Jean Peak

This peak is about 2/3 mile directly south of Mt. San Jacinto. The easiest route is to leave the trail at the junction 0.3 miles below the summint of Mt. San Jacinto and head south following an easy ridge. The peak is rounded and strewn with countless large boulders which must be surmounted repeatedly. The north summit, a small pinnacle, will be encountered just north of the true summit and is class 3 with about 15' of exposed class 4 moves at the top. The south (true) summit is a boulder strewn plateau with a register. The high point is a 10' boulder with a small pine growing out of its top (class 3).
