StephaneFitchRoute Climbed: San Antonio Ski Hut Date Climbed: 12/18/05


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!

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!

RockfiendRoute Climbed: Summit via Bear Canyon Date Climbed: August 20, 2005  Sucess!
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

Took the ski lift from Manker Flat to Baldy Notch, then it's about 1.2 miles up the ski road to the trail. Great training for San Gorgonio, which is in turn great training for Whitney. Nice day for the hike. Temperatures in the mid-70s, light breeze, sunny but a few good shady spots. 2 hours up at a slow pace with lots of stops, 1-1/4 hours down.

I only saw one other person all day and finally got a chance to see some Bighorn Sheep up close when I came upon a half dozen of them in the saddle between Baldy and West Baldy.

First time on this trail. Tough route but not too much traffic. Have to try this way next winter.

Nice day -- not too many people at the top at 0900. Took the longer Devil's Backbone route back down to Manker Flats.
