        We sell the patch you are looking for here at the Mill Creek Visitors Center.  It reads “I Climbed Mt. San Gorgonio” across the top of the patch, and across the bottom of the patch it reads “Elevation 11,502”.  In the center of the patch it has a pic of the mountain with trees and the words “Old Greyback” on it.  The cost is $4.95 plus tax.  We are currently open Friday, Saturday & Sundays 9am to 4:30pm.

        Can I call and pay for one and you folks drop it in the mail ? It would cost me $50 in gas to come get it .

      415797CC-455B-45F4-9B98-E3269F6741CDThe elevation isn’t right but I found this. My son also summitted for the first time two years ago when he was 12. Congratulations

      That elevation is legit. Even if you go back 100 years, the elevation of Gorgonio was 11,485. Since then it’s always been between that and 11,503 or whatever.

      Unless you’re an expert in geodessy, it’s probably prudent to not sweat differences in elevation that can be rectified by a dedicated scout troop piling rocks for a couple hours. Ha!

      I’d be a proud 12 year old wearing that. (I am not, in fact, the producer of that patch. Ha!)
