This was the second attempt for an overnight backpacking trip up the Middle Fork of Lytle Creek to Icehouse Saddle and then across the "3 Ts" to Baldy. Great hike!

Weather was great, but snow was almost none existant:(
Other than that, had good views and got to see some interesting stuff, two gliders, and some idiots in a 4x4 coming down the lower portion of the backbone trail=0 I hiked up with great people for a great ending at the Baldy Lodge for an early dinner.

Been up seven times. Baldy Village or Other Devil's Backbone(via the North) are interesting alternatives to the usual routes.

That's not saying a whole lot, but Baldy is a good peak in any range.

...Only made it to 9600ft...Why is this trail so poorly marked again?? Two weekends in a row I have lost the trail after the SkiHut and have run out of daylight with tons of gas still in the tank. My GPS track looks like a lightning bolt.

All and all a great day to be on the mountain. I only saw 4 other people and nobody made it to the top as far as I can tell(I was hoping to follow their footsteps).

Lots of snow, even all the way down on Manker Flats. Lots of people down there enjoying it.

rbkThis is winter?!? (Bear Creek)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 10, 2007

Even for Southern California, the conditions on Feb. 10, 2007 were absurdly un-winterish. Clouds early, but then the sun shone for the rest of our trip, and temperatures were mostly t-shirt level (although the top had a chilly, 20-30mph wind). Snow on the trail was limited to 15'-diameter patches you could step over or around -- I wore trail runners the whole way, and felt awfully silly for packing 7 pounds of mountain boots & crampons in my pack. Hiking steadily but not especially fast, we summitted in 3:30, and descended in about 2:10. The descent is a bit of a quad-punisher.

climbed Baldy with locals luciano136 and gigamike via a cool loop hike. This felt like a popular CO 14er in terms of the crowd as there were quite a few folks on a marginal day. We got through the backbone w/o having to breakout axe and crampons.

I'd be curious to know if anyone summited today. If so, they wanted it more than I did. I've probalby climbed Baldy 12 time in the last 6 months, but I've never seen wind like today. I'd guess 80 mph gusts.

Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2007
Started at 2pm, summited 7:30. The plan was to test new bivy's and healed broken foot.

left axes and crampons in car. Thermometor read below 20 degrees above sierra hut. Winds at Summit where 30 knots, a guess. dropped down 300 feet and spent night, marginally comfortable.

Bivy's and foot both performed well.

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!
