The day started out very nice but a bit cold. My first hike since August and it felt great to be back out there. The cloud layer hung around the top as we neared the peak. The closer we got to the top the colder it got. When we reached the summit my temperature gage read 31 degrees. And with the strong wind it felt more like 25 degrees. We took some quick photos on the top and got out of there. But over all it was a great hike and I look forward to getting back out there when there’s some more snow.

What a hike! The day started out rainy, windy, and cold. By the time we got to the ski hut the clouds had broken and it felt like spring. The summit was bitterly cold and windy. It had to be in the single digits or less. We finished in the dark and grabbed a frosty brew and a burger to round out the day. One helluva day, my legs still hurt!

I have climbed this mountain 3 times. The first time I climbed rock in the 5.6 range along the waterfall to gain the upper part of the creek. I then hiked the creek for a long time before cutting over and finding the hut. I then climbed scree slope and connected with the ridge. It was a long day.

The second time I summited in the winter and snow boarded back down.

The 3rd time was the very next day when I went looking for my lost keys and cell phone. I didn't find them.

Nice hike. My fiancee, Mandy, and I got a super view at 8,800 feet and tinkered with the idea of taking another hour to tag the summit, but decided to keep it simple and relaxing and leave the top for another day. It was our first big climb together and her first trip up that high. We're looking forward to many hikes together in the future!

Hiked/climbed Mt Baldy a zillion times over the last 35 years. It's a great training hike to have in your backyard.

Fitness hike. Obtained the summit in 1:40. Very busy on the summit, people coming all available routes to the top. Excellent views today as well.

Fierce winds all the way up nearly caused me to turn back, but I and about 3 other groups of hikers were at the summit by about 11:30am. There was supposed to be a rainstorm coming in the next day. The view from the top was a little more clear than usual, but the windstorm made it pretty unpleasant going. Will probably try again sometime in winter or spring but only if I can get some experience in snow and ice first!

By many routes in all seasons. My favorite is up Register Ridge and down the backbone in winter.

Nov 6th 2010- finally did the traverse from big Iron. Great fun with great people, long day in bad weather.

Hiked fire road to Baldy notch, crossed the Backbone and returned via Ski hut. The summit was packed with at least 30 hikers. This was my 10th climb.

My first trip up Baldy was an Adventure. Beginning in the village we started up the trail and somehow got off route. We ended up climbing up a scree slope just south of the bowl to get back on the trail. Once back on the trail it began to snow. (it was 85 degrees) Upon reaching the notch inbetween west baldy and the summit we realized that it wasnt' snowing it was ashing from the massive blaze coming up the north side of the Mountain. At this point we ran across the summit and looked for the quickest route down. Of course we saw the bowl. After 15 minutes of "Screeing" we arrived in the relative safety of the ski hut and met up with another pair of hikers whom just finished the same process we did. Lucky for us they were parked in Manker Flats and were happy to give us a lift back to the village.

The first peak of the 8000m Challenge on So Cal's Triple crown. Blazed up the hut trail then ran the entire way back down on a lovely fall morning.

A bit longer than taking the trail. The Class 2 rubble approach led to some fun Class 3 at the top. Beautiful but windy/cold at the top. Look forward to trying the Bowl with some snow in it!

Crisp morning ascent, few people on the trail and rewarded at the peak with a sea of clouds covering suburbia and and all of its trappings. Only the majestic peaks were permitted above the clouds today.

Another beautiful morning in the mountains. Reached summit about 7:30am and relaxed till the people started arriving a little later. Went to West Baldy from there after five people/ groups arrived. As soon as I reached the top of West Baldy I saw six bighorns frozen by my appearence about 60 to 70 feet away. We stared at each other for maybe 30 seconds and they left down the north facing slope. That made my day!

Oh how I love this trail, all 12 miles roundtrip and 5,804 elevation gain and loss (3 times and still loving it). Brought my wife along for the suffering, I do not believe she shares my sentiment for the route. At any rate, clear views all along the ridge and the summit. Busy day on the summit, I lost count after 23 people, but only saw 5 people on the way up Bear Canyon.

This is my first summit in Southern California and it was great. My girlfriend and I left the trailhead at 8:15am and were standing on the summit three hour later at 11am. The weather was great with a light breeze to keep it cool. We came down the Baldy Bowl Trail and were at the car by 2pm. Both trails were in great shape.

18 of us from the Outdoorsclub.org made it up to Mt Baldy via Bear Canyon (the Village) in four hours. Half of us returned via the ski lifts. Thanks to R. Pollard who we saw on the summit for giving me a ride back to the Village and saving me nine miles.

Made it to the top with my nine year old Jack. He made it up no problem, about 2.5 hours from the top of the ski lifts. Nice weather, lots of people on the trail. About 1hour 45 on the way down (no stops). Met Cy Kaicener at the ski lifts, gave him a ride back to Baldy Village
