Great hike. I suffered my girlfriend through her first peak on this one. She did quite well for never having hiked before. Great weather that day.

I like taking my dogs on the section of the PCT from Dawson to Baden Powell. There aren't many people along that part and it may be the most beautiful section of trail in the Angeles.

My brother, my son (7yo), and I hiked up Mt Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap. The three of us had our picture taken at the Baden-Powell monument on top... 2 Eagle Scouts and hopefully 1 future Eagle Scout. Perfect day for a hike 60s-70s and cloudless blue skies.

As we were leaving to head down the trail, we met a rather serious looking trail-runner. We discovered that this was Jorge Pacheco of Los Angeles who has won the Angeles Crest 100-mile endurance race 3x (2001, 2003, 2004). He was out doing a 40-mile training run (b2b with another 40-miler the next day). I had my picture made with him right at the Wally Waldorf tree (where Jorge was looking for some water bottles he had stashed). In the background of my picture, you can see the sign announcing this as the high point (9300') for the Angeles Crest 100. Really cool that I met him at this point.

Did Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap: uneventful and a bit warm. Angeles Crest Hwy access to Vincent Gap is still from the east only.

It was a very hot day, high nineties, ran out of water before descending the switchbacks down to vincent gap. Impressive views of the sierra and the ocean areas. 17 miles.

Great weather for a hike, fairly clear with some lower valley haze. A lot of snow and ice still on the lower trail. More so on north facing switchbacks than the east facing switchbacks until you gain altitude. At 8100 feet switched to crampons and climbed vertical. Modest postholing in some areas. Summit view of Baldy was spectacular. On descent ran into the only other summit hiker for the day, A Brit who was training for Shasta and going to enjoy his dinner on top. Only other soul encourted for the day was a trail runner training for the Angeles Crest 100 mile endurance run.

Great day for a hike. I started solo, but met a couple of hikers on the way up. The entire trail was covered with new snow; we were the first ones in the new snow and the only ones on the mountain today.

We first did Mt. Burnham, which is something over 9,000 ft. Then, we summitted Baden-Powell. To make things a little challenging, we then dropped down along a very steep ridge to the summit of Ross Mountain. Ross is about 7'400 ft. elevation so we had dropped about 2,000 feet to get to it. The descent to Ross was tough enough, but then we had to ascend the 2'000 feet back up to Baden-Powell to get back to our start. This is a challenging hike.

First time i came up the mountain wiht ice on it. Above 7500 feet there was absolutely nobody else on the mountain. Would've been suicide without crampons! The sky was very clear and it was easy to see the ocean and Catalina Island. About 15 degrees with wind on the summit. Gorgeous day! Made it down pretty fast as we were glissading down most of the way, using our axe as brake.

Climbed together with my wife Eli and my brother in law Nelson. We were over there at the end of the prohibition due to fire hazard. That's why we were alone. Fantastic views and great mountain.

This was my sixth hike up the trail since July, but the first time I turned back. The trail was just too icy this time. About half an hour up the trail, I encountered a group of three hikers coming down. They had boots and poles, but no crampons or ice axes. They were about 500 or so feet in elevatioin above me when one guy in the group had slipped and fallen down the slope. He looked me right in the face and said that the only reason he was alive was because he'd hit a tree and it broke his fall. He was convinced that he'd be dead if that hadn't happened. With only Yaktraks on my boots, I decided then and there to turn back. Glad I did. Met up with another couple of hikers coming up when I was on the way down. They had crampons, but I don't know if they went to the summit. I'm sure they encountered the other three on the way up. Hope they managed OK.



Don't hike solo, and always have the right gear.
