PhenomenalWoman

End of a week long trip to Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon. Was a nice way to end the trip and get away from the paved tourist trails all throughout Se/Kc. Had the summit to myself, with really lovely views of the canyon. And as a beautiful fog rolled in, I made my exit.

Too much snow from a recent storm had Matthew and I abandoning our quest to Sugarloaf. Went up Mitchell, Lookout Peak, Buck Rock and Big Baldy instead. Trip Report

The rewarding views from the ridge and summit were
well worth the moderate exertion. A large amount of
snow still lingered on the trail which made navigation
a bit tricky at times. Clear skies gave us a 360 degree
view from the summit.

Great afternoon snowshoe to the summit on Saturday afternoon of Presidents' Day weekend. Plenty of people in the park, but only a couple of us out on this beautiful trail. The views at the top were well worth the effort.

Ed DorseyRoute Climbed: Baldy Ridge from the North Date Climbed: February 27, 2004  Sucess!
Arnie, Chip and I went up to do some AT skiing in the Big Meadow area but couldn't get in due to too much snow (8 feet plus). So instead we were lucky enough to get escorted past the road closure gate and parked in the Montecito Lodge parking lot (nice place). We bought our trail passes in the lodge (to be official) and then skiied along the fire-road / cross country tracks (beautifully maintained) and left the road at the closest point to the ridge-line. We set up a winter camp just east of the ridge (two nights with low temps around 12 degrees). We skiied the ridge from the north and up to the summit, which was heavily corniced, and had lunch as clouds from the SJ Valley blew up and poured over the summit. Absolutely amazing. It felt like we were in some far off region, but we were only an hour and a half out of Fresno. Lots of great back-country skiing in the area if there is plenty of snow. Highly recommended for a quick winter weekender.

Tim Baxter and I did this route on our first outting to Big Baldy. BM is a very wild and somwhat demading route, especially pitch 2. This area hardly sees any traffic yet still is easy to get to. Lots of potential for new routes....

The adoptee trek to find some stuff out about this mountain. Up the Big Baldy Trail, down via the Lodge trail. Weather was very nice, comfortably cool. Views were unforunately mostly overcast...
