Thanks to Michael Gordon for adding this peak.

Mount San Gorgonio is the highest peak south of the Sierra Nevada mountains all the way to the Mexican border. It's 11,499 summit is the terminus point of a 6+ mile long ridge with numerous peaks over 10,000 feet. In the summer it's a simple trail walk, in the winter one can encounter screaming winds, deep snow, and hard ice on the north slope/face. Located near the major metropolis of Los Angeles, it's hard to believe there's millions of people eleven-and-a-half thousand feet below you. This website has all the details you're gonna need to get there.
