RickFWatch Out for Rattlesnakes!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2013

RickF

I did this as an afternoon hike, after work on a Monday. Even though we were extra alert for snakes, I almost stepped on one. We saw a second snake in the manzanita just below the summit. It was freaky walking through the overgrown manzanita in snake season, at the optimim time of day to encounter rattlesnakes.

Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2013
from Cow Canyon saddle and the trail back down.
The firebreak wasn't a good choice. Too brushy and overgrown. Killer white thorn in dense pockets.
The trail was really decent though.

Great hike from Cow Canyon saddle with good views along the way. Experienced about a foot of snow on north side approach to summit.

No problems finding the use trail just above the RV park. Pretty steep trail but a great workout and great views from the top.

This was a great workout, and a good challenge for my developing off-trail navigational skills. The views all around are great. You can check out my trip report and pictures on my blog.

Started at Cow Saddle. Found the use trail no problem. Several sections are almost grown over by whitethorn and brush. Some sectons are washed out by the recent rains but all in all had no issues with route finding. Recommend wearing long pants and sleeves. Kind of a brush fest but worth the effort. The views are stellar.

coming down bear canyon trail from Baldy, hopped off onto the ridge head down over a few bumps to Lookout. Peak is kind of dissapointing

Went up with a large group of people for a bighorn sheep survey. Nice day and we saw lots of sheep.

Much more enjoyable than I anticipated. The trail is actually in great shape, and is just steep enough to be fun.

Decided to hit both Lookout and Sunset, but it was so friggin hot! Still made it, nice views,

But I screwed up and did not contour left around the large bump along the ridge before the saddle, and had some terrible bush whacking...

here are my GPS tracks and a Google Map of our route.

Was heading to Oregon this morning so I woke up very early, got some Mcdonalds health food and hit the trail. This one was painful. Thought I was being tracked by something with four legs and sharp teeth so I was a little nervous. That's just because I'm an idiot.

Didn't find the route too difficult. Only issue was the first turn-off when starting up the initial firebreak. I went directly up the South ridge at the end of the hike to the summit.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2007

Climbed the wrong Route 3 (per HPS directions) due to 14 degree difference in magnetic and true north. Other than that, it was a great hike and great day. Continued on to the top of Mt Baldy.

That sounds like the type of adventure this mountain will give you.

My friend and I took the south facing firebreak all the way up. Thick brush and class 3 exposure near the top. Took to long on top, watched one of the most amazing sunsets of my life, came down in dark which was very hard to do, also spooked a large animal.

I had quite an adventure in doing this mountain and I'll probably do a trip report on it. Even though I took the easiest route from the navigation standpoint, I had some trouble in route-finding on the return. And even though I lost my GPS, I greatly enjoyed getting to this peak.
