Imperial County High Point Trip Report
Blue Angels Peak
Date: December 23, 2001
Author: Trapper Robbins
Previous reports and guidebooks have accurate route information. Roxanne and I initially ended up on the
peak 0.1 mile South of Blue Angels Peak. It turns out that both this south summit (4,520+ feet) and Blue
Angel Peak (4548 feet) have registers on them. Apparently, a small group of people claim that the south
summit is the higher of the two (by 2 feet). They are very close in elevation and we were not able to
personally determine which is highest.
Also note that this area appears very heavily used by people illegally crossing the border. There are lots of
way trails and we found stashes of water, blankets, trash, etc. At one point, a black border patrol helicopter
swooped in to check us out. And Roxanne is pretty sure she saw someone sleeping in a shallow cave.
I would recommend not being in this area after dark.
