Ever since John Muir's legendary first speedo-clad ascent of Mount Baldy in 1885, the Speedo Hike has been one of Claremont's most cherished traditions. For 128 years, Claremontians have repeated the hike, wearing speedos, fanny packs, and sandals (with socks). Join On The Loose for this most excellent adventure.

If you can drive please email jonathan.feingold@pomona.edu with how many seats you have! The more cars we have the better.  Meet in between the OEC and Sontag at 8AM.  From campus we'll drive to Manker Flats campground, ascend via the Ski Hut Trail and descend on Devil's Backbone. The hiking can be somewhat strenuous so bring plenty of water. We should be back to campus by 4PM.

 

It's gonna be great.
