15 October 1966
By: Gene Andreosky
Leader: Bob Schull
As a prelude to the UCLA-Penn State football game, 23 members, of which 16 were emblem holders, met at Rebel Ridge Ski Slope for the start of the hike with Bob Schull and Gene Andreosky. After a short (?) caravan, the entourage departed for a pleasant hike over desert-type terrain for an eventual enjoyable time of rock scrambling. The group turned out to be very enthusiastic and continuously pushed the leader in order to get to the top faster. The leader, who was out for a nice, easy stroll, naturally complied, even though he did his darndest to keep the speed at a reasonable pace. After about two hours, the first 20 were on the uppermost rock. One person failed to make the top and Larry Salmon and a friend, who decided to take a detour, reached the top a little later (was it six hours later?). After an enjoyable lunch in which not one person made fun of the leader's selection of food, the group, except for Larry Salmon and friend, started down and returned to the cars in another two hours. Larry Salmon and friend were with the group when the cars were reached. Most people went on to other peaks, but an important element returned to Smogville to attend the football game. Final score: UCLA (Yea!) 49 - Penn State (Ooh!) 11.
(Editor's Note: The other peaks mentioned were Tip Top, Mineral, and Onyx.)
