SkydiveKen#9 I think  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2007


Left late sat night and camped at 8500' on the ridge from bear flat at 11pm. The city lights are amazing from up here. Spooked a couple of deer (?) all I saw was glowing eyes...hope they were deer. Up at dawn and on to the summit; tagged west Baldy and Harwood on the way to the notch. Wimped out with my new boots and took the lift down.

Love this mountain, this is where I am home. Saw lots of bighorn today, 1st pack was 3 females, 2nd pack was 2 females, and the 3rd pack was 5 males, awesome and very close within 50 of us. Took old favorite Ski Hut up and down.

Climbed to ski hut, and then continued straight up the bowl. The exposure was cool, and the loose scree got my blood running fast a few times. It was beautiful on the summit. I had it all to myself and I took a nap.

About the 5th or 6th climb for me. This time from manker flats via the ski hut trail, then back down via the backbone and nunder the ski lift. It was windy and cold on top despite being warm down in the city. Views are always amazing.

Date Climbed: May 5, 2007


Up Bear ck summit at 8pm. Spent the night just below the summit under a bush to get out of the wind. What a beautiful sight-- all the city lights and a three quarter moon. Almost had to crawl to Harwood due to the WIND. Finished by hiking the 3T's to Icehouse cyn Sunday morning.

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!

Nice weather, no snow below the ski hut, very little after that. Perfect blue sky day

Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2007


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.

Been up many times mostly on the bear creek trail. It's a great trainer trail.

Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2007


...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.
