jsh13Great Summer hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008


This is a nice place to be in the hot weather, since going up the North side means you are in the shade for most of the trip. The views from the ridge just before the summit are outstanding.

truthtrekkerFirst Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


Hey this was a great hike. This was the first summit for me and my wife. We had nine hikers with us. One very experianced hiker who happened to be dealing with a shoulder injury, one hiker between intermediate to advanced and 6 intermediate hikers. Though me and my wife just made our first summit we have been hiking for some time. This was a great experiance. I will be going up this winter for some ice training. Hope to do Langley next year.

Hiked up Mount Baden-Powell from Vincent Gap. Had the summit to myself (unexpectedly) at 10am. Saw some hikers on my way down.

TripoliRickNo switchbacks in the winter


I had gone up Baden Powell several times when covered with snow and never knew there was any "switchbacks" on the trail. First time up without snow it reminded me of below Trail Crest on Whitney. On one winter ascent, the road was closed from Mountain High and we X-country skied in. We made some great tracks on the foot of snow covering the road and were going to "race" each other back to the car. We were the only people on top so we stayed there for several hours (: When we got back to the road we discovered they plowed it to Vincent Gap and we ended up carrying our skiis most of the way back ):

With my friend, Noel. Jumped out of the Jeep and tore off in the wrong direction on the PCT for a few miles before figuring out something was very wrong. Backtracked, started again, then rain and fog showed up. Crazy day. (Loved that Wally Waldron tree!)

Fins129Warm winter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2008


Nice climb, icy in some spots but other than that the snow was perfect. Pretty warm till wind made it a little colder on top. Perfect day.

Zhenya77Mount Baden-Powell Ski Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2008


The road was closed about 2 miles East of the Vincent Gap. I started around 12:30 pm and was near the trail head quite soon. I followed someone’s steps which climbed quite steadily. Carrying skis and not bother with skins was pretty good idea. The mountain is somewhat steep and the last hundred vertical meters did require a use of crampons. I have summited the peak at 4:35 pm. After a quick rest, I started my descent down the icy slopes. The first 10 min were unpleasant, until I reached a sheltered shadowed forest with its soft snow. The ski descent down the narrow couloir was rewarding. There was a narrow rocky portion which I decided to traverse, but other than that, the moon gave enough tonal colors to ski after the sun set (“Please do not do this, especially alone”). The hike back was under the moonlight. I was near my car around 7:30 pm. It was a good trip. The temperature could have been just a little bit cooler than 65 F.

Red Truck crew doing the Ice climb up the Avalance Chutes on the Northeast face. Wear a helmet and beware of falling debris, lots of fun otherwise. Knee-deep pow on north faces down. Gonna bring a snowboard next-time. Best quality snow I've seen in SoCal.

Snowshoed from Vincent Gap to the peak on a gorgeous day and all I got was this bag of ass.

Sounds like you guys had fun... I assume you were the folks in the red truck? We were in the Outback with OR plates.

Just out for a morning workout. After Baden-Powell I hiked over to Burnham then Jogged most of the way back down to Vincent Gap.

Route Climbed: Dawson Saddle June 10, 2004

Perfect Southern California day, at least in the mountains. Bagged Throop Peak first, then went on to Baden-Powell and bagged Burnham Peak on the hike out. 4 1/2 hours car to car.

Route Climbed: Vincent Gap November 17 2002

Nice morning for a hike. Met my friend Miguel at the trail head, hiked to the summit and back. Then went back to my house to go over last minute details and sort gear for our upcomming trip to Pico de Orizaba.

Route Climbed: Vincent Gap May 27th 2002

Decided to go out and count the switchbacks up Baden-Powell. 2 1/2 hours round trip. Counted 40 on the way up and 41 on the way down. Go figure, guess I'll have to go back and recount.
