JRB71 and 72  Sucess!

JRB

My first time beyond 12,000 feet. 1971 trip was beautiful weather and we slid down some snow filled ravines. My first glissade on an old Korean era army poncho my dad gave me. 1972 was windy and overcast.

Climbed it in summer 1995, either July or August, I can't remember. Stayed on top for at least half an hour. It was a grey, cloudy day but storms never developed.

JPBX924Great, Tough hike  Sucess!
Fairly long hike in from Miranda camp, scree slope on the northern face of the mountain was a great joy to run down, I couldn't imagine climbing from that face. Storm blew in at 14:00, almost on the dot, crew was safe and off the peak by then.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2007
The first time I went up Baldy we had a chance to eat lunch and I had a great time, the second time was considerably harder as we had already hike 10 miles + before even starting to climb baldy. Rayado... You have to love it :)

Climbed it solo (I am a ranger at Philmont) from Pueblano up through French Henry then the switchbacks to the ridge. Met some cool crews along the way. Started at 8am, summited at 12:30...Stayed about 45 minutes before a sudden storm brought down loads of hail on me. Went to Baldy Town on the way down. It was pouring rain the whole way back to the Ponil Turnaround. Great day and I am glad I got to spend more time up there then last time. This was my first 12'er in 07

aprovanceBaldy via east trail  Sucess!

aprovance

Great hike, I loved it! It was my first real peak. Once past the treeline, there was scree all the way to the top. It was sometimes slow going on the scree, but that seemed to do a good job of reducing the effects of AMS in some of the other hikers. I really enjoyed the view, but sadly we were unable to stay at the summit for more than about 20 minutes due to the fact that a thunderstorm was heading our way. I would love to go to Philmont and do it again!

Hiked to the top as part of a Philmont scout trip in my teens (mid 1980s). It was a fun, challenging week.

If you love scree you will definitely enjoy the steep portion of the ascent. It is a really nice hike with an spectacular view.

I was part of the P2K contingent from Trapper Trails Council in the summer of 2000. This was my first major peak and my Philmont trek is what really got me into backpacking/climbing. Tons of fun!
