DalianMany times  Sucess!

I cannot say how many times I climbed this mountain since 2009 when a friend told me about it. I lived for 5 years only one hour drive away from this mountain so it was easier to go there once a month sometimes. In the past year I hiked mostly the trail in the back of the Visitor Center (forgot the name). On December 21, 2012 I broke my left fibula on the way down. I had to go down with a broken leg for 3 and a half miles in the dark. That was the longest hike of my life! I'll always remember Mount Baldy!

It's sort of a given that there would be a lot of people here but it was just too much...

This is a local favorite for me for conditioning hikes - considerably easy access from the LA area and no red-tape with permit quotas, etc. Have summitted many times already. The most beautiful route, in my opinion, is Old Baldy Trail (Bear Canyon) though it is one of the most demanding in return for what it offers. I prefer that route for Cactus to Clouds training. I also enjoy the Register Ridge route... but it's almost a death wish to descend that route without some poles! Each time at the top, the climate has been very different. I'm sure I'll be back again!

ScottWhitneyBoundFirst Summit (via Ski Hut Trail)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2009

Was I successful? Well, I survived at least. I could not find the trail above the Ski Hut, so wound up plowing straight up the right side of the Baldy Bowl through loose scree the whole way. Luckily I managed to come out right on target and didn't die before reaching the summit. I did run out of water, however, while hiking down the ski lift maintenance road to Manker Flats TH, but had a chilled bottle of water waiting for me in the car. It was a Thursday, so the lift was closed, and there was nobody at the Notch to help with water.

Car camped at Manker Flat. Dinner at Mt. Baldy Lodge. Big crowds on Mount Baldy but never a problem.

I've been up twice, once during a dry January and again the same Summer. Lovely hiking, with some amazing flora and fauna. Watch for bighorns!

Ski Hut is 100% snow free all the way up. A few patches of snow off the north of the summit can be used to replenish water supply>

Still breezy and cool. Perfect hiking weather. Cold at night.

The Pleiades and Orion guarded the west while Ares and The Lion domineered the east. Love the stars...

Drove down from the Bay Area for a conference in Palm Springs - after visiting the downtown LA library I drove up to Manker Flat and hiked up to the ski lodge and took the Devil's Backbone trail up to Baldy with a side visit to West Baldy and Harwood on a fine afternoon. Barely any snow to be found anywhere, and none on the trail. Trip report is HERE.

3rd time up, but the first time not taking the Devil's Backbone. Althougth a bit steeper, it is definately more scenic.

SEEING TRAILS HIKE GANG full-moon-lunar-eclipse night hike. Went up via Baldy Bowl trail, reached the summit, traversed the Devil's Backbone and came down the Baldy Notch trail. Very windy and exposed on the summit. Lots of fun.
