vyzerGreat feeling  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2009


The air was the most hazy I've seen in a long time, but I had a day off and had been wanting to climb Baldy, so I went for it. The views were obstructed, but the feeling of reaching the top after hiking a rocky trail for 3 hours was greatness!

missymtngirlYay......I did this hike along with the rest of Southern California!!!


What can I say...it had to be done. I've climbed this about 3 times now. All I can say is I'm glad I'm still alive. Let me tell you...doing this hike with dark clouds rolling in can be hazardous for your health...this is the closest I've ever come to being struck by lightening. The image of a perfectly shaped bolt will forever be ingrained in my mind. I'm glad the devils backbone was merciful that one eventful day!

KVHiker6 Peaks 8000 Feet  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009


There were a lot of hikers in this section of the trail which is pretty steep. We moved right along amidst the traffic up the bare landscape via many small switchbacks. Mount San Antonio is also known Mount Baldy. Mount Baldy is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains with an elevation of 10,064’. There is no register up there, but there is a giant plaque which I took a picture of. The distance to San Antonio from Mount Harwood is .8 miles, and the elevation gain is 704’. After enjoying the amazing view for awhile we headed over to West Baldy.

From the ski lift parking lot, walked up use trails to Baldy Notch, from there over Harwood to summit. Pretty good views, as far as SoCal goes. Just a little under 4 hrs car to car.

DigglerNice day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 29, 2009


Climbed with Faith, in preparation for a Cactus to Clouds bid the next day. It was a challenge just getting out of bed this morning, as I'd only slept about 4 hours after a long drive from the Bay the night before.

Starting from the road (below San Antonio Falls) at 10.26, we made fair time up the road, past the ghetto ski area, & up Devil's Backbone to the summit. Summited around 13.54. Clouds, smog, &/or haze obscured views in all directions, & nearby thunderstorms made us turn around just a few minutes after getting to the top. Regardless, the exposure on this class 1 trail was abnormal & fun, & the views of San Gorgonio & San Jacinto were nice. What a gem in the backyard of LA residents! Took the steep trail down to the chairlift parking on the return, saving at least 15 or 20 minutes, I'd surmise. Got back to the car around 17.00 or so.

Very nice day!

renaistreAwesome Memories  Sucess!


Baldy is a gem. I've climbed it at least six times via the ski hut trail, and I first learned to use an ice axe on the bowl. There's nothing like getting up above the clouds or the smog and standing on that summit to make you feel like you're worlds away from the city just below you.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

Mid-1970s to 2004, climbed the Baldy Bowl snow chutes a buncha times. Once watched a friend fling himself down the steepest one, on skis. Looked kinda dangerous--no thanks!
