Smith938000 Meter Challenge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2006


The 8000 Meter Challenge is a competition sponsored by JanSport between all outdoor retail companies; for example REI, SportChalet and Adventure 16. You have to summit Mt. Baldy, San Gorgonio Mountain and San Jacinto Peak in 24 hours. This was the first of the three peaks. We all began hiking at 4:50am, I summited at 6:57am and arrived back at the cars at 8:20. Total hiking time was 3 hours and 30 minuets. It was a very beautiful day and temperatures were nice throughout the hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


Went with my friend Bill who wanted to hike up under the ski lift and do the Backbone Trail. Kinda crazy but we did it. Gorgeous day with a nice cool breeze. That first part was steep, 1300' in a mile. We're training for Whitney in a couple of weeks. Nice day.

2nd SoCal highpoint. We took the lift to Devils Backbone. Pretty nice day. We could see the other 3 highpoints from the summit.

kngalaricMany a good time  Sucess!


I've hiked up Baldy so many times, I can't even count them all. My favorite time was when clouds covered the earth at 6000' feet. All the peaks around SoCal were identifiable, but the smog and garbage was not!

Magnificent when the views are clear, pretty good even when they aren't.

Smith93Ski hut trail/ Devils Backbone  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2006


Training hike for my upcoming Mt. Whitney trek and for the 8000 meter challenge in September. Ran into 6 REI employees from the Rancho Cucamonga store on the way up and then on the way out I met another two employees from the San Diego store. Plus me that made 9 REI employees climbing Mt. Baldy that day and they were the only people I met up there. Weird...

While visitng my brother in LA, Anette and I hiked up this one. Started out at the TH at 9:30 am, hiked up to the hut pretty slowly and rested there a while chatting with the hutkeeper. Then went across the traverse to the ridge and slowly worked our way up. Better scenery than I expected. San Antonio Falls is nice (and popular) and the manzanita patches were great. Huge pinecones everywhere. At about 9200 feet on the last bit before the summit, Annie started to experience an altitude headache so we did not linger long at the summit.

Made our way back down a lot quicker and at one point, I was looking at a lizard on the side of the trail and I misstepped. Did a nice faceplant on the trail. Sweet bruise on my arm to show for it. Always impressive! ;- ) All in all, it was a much nicer hike than I expected. Such a great place right next to 15 million people. Hope to get back down there sometime to get up Gorgonio and Jacinto.

Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2006


Hiked the Devil's Backbone trail up and down in fantastic weather. Hit the trail at 8:30am, and made the summit at 11:30am, just in time to avoid hiking up in the heat. The views on this trail are some of the best I've ever seen.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2006


Great day to hike, weather was totally clear, but definitely warm. Baldy Bowl climb was sun-exposed, but summit was totally nice. Not a breath of wind on the summit, glorious day. View was awesome, 360 degrees, but a bit hazy. Stopped by for a snowball fight with my hiking buddy just below the summit at a couple small lingering late-season snowfields, just off the trail. Ran into a couple folks training for Whitney later in the summer.

Descended via Devils Backbone, Falls Road walk down from Baldy Notch was LONGGGGGGGG, felt like it would never end, temps probably 90-95 degrees....UGHHHH!

California County highpoint #18 for me!

tongos2north ridge/other backbone  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006
great day for hiking, a bit hot. Left the sign saying "private road" for Acorn in Wrightwood at 11:40am, hiked up the paved road, up acorn trail to baldy and made it to the top of Mt. Baldy by 2:40pm, tons of peeps on summit. Returned the same way. Tough workout, 7000' elevation gain overall. I would really recommend the north backbone trail, its steep but its not crowded, very desolate and bighorn sheep sightings are common. Unlike the other routes, this one starts from the North (Wrightwood or Guffy Area).

Our 3rd Annual. Baldy Village to the peak, down Devil's Backbone to the notch, then up over Thunder, Telegraph and Timber (The Three Ts) and down Icehouse Canyon. The payoff is standing on Telegraph and seeing practically the entire route you took up Baldy a few hours earlier.

Conditions couldn't be better-wind wasn't bad, sun was out, clear day, etc. Very few patches of snow and none were on the trail itself. The day before was chilly, damp and foggy so I lucked out!
