johnmRoute Climbed: Ski Hut Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2006


Good hiking weather, clear with a slight cooling breeze. No snow to the Ski Hut and from there it was patchy and soft to the summit. Easy to traverse in low top boots. The views east and west from summit were spectacular. The desert was hazy and the marine layer was very thick today. Met a couple of good hiking buddies, David and Bob, who set a good pace. Back to the San Antonio Falls parking lot by 1:00.

Devils Backbone route. Noted a fire to the east which was interesting and the clouds covering L.A. made a great sight.

QuadaxialClimbing the Bowl while sick is no fun!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 26, 2006


My girlfriend and I spent nearly 5 hours post-holing our way to the summit through deep soft snow via the Bowl. I was also sick that day, but I wanted to get in the training for doing Whitney. It was pure hell all day, but it was rewarding to have done it.

We passed two guys on our way down who were heading up the Backbone. They were ill-equipped and it was very late in the day. They may have gotten themselves into trouble. We later learned that they rode the chair lifts up without paying and that the resort had called the police on them.

I've done the Labor Day race known as "Baldy Run to the Top" several times. The last mile up the bald south face in particular will leave you whimpering.

Date Climbed: Mar 26, 2006


It was a nice sunny weather that Sunday morning. The forecast for the High Sierra Mountains weather left much to be desired. We had to postpone our climb and as an alternative Mt.Baldy fell as an excellent mountain to test the gear and to get in shape most of the people in our party. The ski down was good with the exception of the numerous rocks that scratched my skies to a great extend. It a good mountain to get everything organized before the real climbing season begins.

A slow slog to the top -- but the skiing was superb 'cause we got an early start. Above 9400' the snow was delightful. Lower elevations slushed up considerably by the afternoon...

Left at 9am from Manker Flat. Ready for some snow action, I put on my Koflachs and took crampons and snowshoes with me. Until I reached the notch, I didn't need any of them. The trail was nice, with some patches of ice, but otherwise OK. I put on my snowshoes for the Devil's Backbone ridge, the snow was deep there. It was a great winter training worth every step.

Call it experience-building. Went up the ski bowl and forgot to check the compass and descended 2000 feet down the wrong side. Nothing to do by ascend back into the storm and go down the right way. It's easy to get messed up sometimes.

Went on what was supposed to be a beautiful day. Partly cloudy in the morning but a blizzard hit just as we reached the summit. See also my trip report:


I hike Baldy regularly as a training hike.

This was probably my second favorite mountain (next to Strawberry) when I lived in LA. Did the ski hut trail quite a few times - the bowl was always a nice snow climb.

Date Climbed: Mar 4, 2006


Skinned to summit from near the new Baldy Bowl Trail sign (at the major switchback heading toward the ridge, 1/3 mile above the hut). Coverage was thin, but the snow was much more consolidated than I expected. Not enough to ski the bowl, so skiied the trees along the trail. Lots of people out enjoying the day.

Great hike so close to LA. Who knew? I guess a lot of people know.

EManBevHillsMultiple Climbs  Sucess!


Hiked/skied Baldy several times each year since I moved to LA in 1996. Usual route is Baldy Bowl, but have ascended Register Ridge, Devil's Backbone and Bear Canyon as well. Skied the North side a few times, too.

This ridge route is a tough, tough route. Picked it up by the Ski Hut Trail sign-in register. Steep, steep, steep. Encountered some knee deep snow. Followed the ridge to the saddle between Harwood and Baldy and then up the south face to the summit. Returned via the Bowl and Ski Hut Trail.
