socalpeakbaggerAimed for saddle between Baldy and Harwood  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 11, 2017


Snow conditions were great, I was at the bottom of bowl by 6am. Did a mix of snow and scree scrambling sticking to the path of least steepness. Came up on the saddle between Harwood and Baldy. This is probably the easiest route up, it gets much steeper in the middle parts of the bowl.

zoomlocoExcellent access for snowboarding   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2011


Faster and more fun than summer ascents; Second time this winter; the most convenient mountain route to shred in SoCal (though not the best- see san J's Snow Creek Couloir). TR on triple crown snowboarding here: http://pullharder.org/2011/04/13/the-socal-triple-crown-shredding-the-range-highpoints/

Skinned up the center of the bowl alongside 30+ new friends on a beautiful New Years Day. Big mistake to ski back down the S ridge, nothing but wind-swept breakable crust.

Nice day, good snow, but very windy once we crested the top ridge prior to the last slope to the summit.

mdostbyAnother fun day on Baldy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2009


Climbed one of the chutes in the bowl with a group of good friends that "forjan" put together. Some went up the main trail and some up the bowl. We came down the devil's backbone. Bypassed the "crux" by climbing up to the ridge proper of the backbone then descending the ridge all the way. Very hard snow conditions in the upper bowl. All in all a great day in the mountains with great friends!

Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2009


Thanks to Miguel for rounding up the SoCal mountaineering crew (I tagged along only as a pseudo mountaineer). Great group and other than the windy summit, a pleasant day.

I have done this route 5 times. Easier with snow on the route. I hate scree slopes.

UPDATE- Ski Descent, sort of...

nwhitcomblessons learned  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2008


First ascent of bowl, solo. Got a late start and had some trouble with my crampons, wound up hitting the top near sunset, learning a valuable lesson about climbing in the dark as I got a little lost on the way down. Made it out eventually, though, thanks in part to directions from a helpful snowmobile mechanic. Will be sure to head up earlier next time.

I've done several snow climbs of the bowl, the last being during white-out conditions and severe winds at the top with Taco Del Rio, Travis and Tom Becht. Memorable day with a fabulous group of guys.
