Smith93Sunny to clouds in 5 minuets flat!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 11, 2007

I started hiking at about 8:20am there was little snow on the trail all the way to the Sierra Club Ski Hut. Past the bowl the snow begins, it's very icy and continues to the top of the ridge. I reached the top at about 2pm and then descended along the Devils Backbone trail to the Baldy ski area; from there I took the service road all the way down to my car at Manker Flats. I don't think that the temperature ever got above 40 degrees. Plus the winds on the ridges and on the summit could push you around a little bit. It was a long day, but very fun.

Great Hike anytime of year. Devils backbone is great, and really fun when it's windy. Bear Creek is one long march to the top. Go another way. Ski bowl is fun snow climb. Watch out for skiiers, boarders, and crazy glissaders. Avalanche danger is a big concern on this route during winter.

An absolutely gorgeous day on Baldy. Took the Ski-Hut trail up and the Backbone down. A little snow on the trail in parts, but nothing we didn't feel comfortable with not having any winter gear.

This trip was a pleasant surprise. Even though it is very close to the city the area here is quite wild and beautiful. Its also a steep-ass trail, good views, lots of connecting trails for long milage if you want it.

Only made it to the ridge above Baldy Bowl because I didn't have enough time to get to the top and make it all the way back down so that I could be at work at 2pm. I'm going back on Monday and Wednesday, this is the begining of my training for Mt. Shasta and Mt. Rainier.

3h 48m! We ran up and down the backbone, and it was fun! Finally got the three saintly mountains of socal! Worst view of the three,a really smoggy day.After spending a year training in the San Gorgonio wilderness, this was a walk in the park!

Hiked up late Friday night and spent the night on the summit. Beautiful full moon. Didn't even need to turn my headlamp on. Didn't see a soul until about 9:00 a.m. on Saturday when the day-hikers began congregating.

This was my first mountain above 10k ft. All-in-all, it went well. I climbed the devils backbone trail after mistakenly going directly up the ski slopes, which were quite steep. At times they were over 35% grade. Not having done much climbing before this, I started at a blistering pace....progressively slowing until the lodge at the top of the first ski slope.

After that, all went well. I summitted and was back at my car in about 4 hours. I basically ran down the hill because I was afraid that my rental car would be locked in the parking area.

Good times though!!

Great weather, but the view was increasingly obscured by smoke from the Esperanza fire. Lots of people out on the trail and summit. Couldn't find a summit register, but enjoyed a nice long rest reclining in one of the many windbreaks. My first SoCal highpoint.

Finally got around to hiking it 8 years after I moved out of the LA area. Fun hike, but very hot and exposed to the sun. Heatwave in SoCal at that time. Ran low on water, stumbled out to my truck ... thank heavens there was a small pub just down the road!

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.
