mricciGreat Snow!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2010


Started at 6AM. The snow was great but became increasingly slushy as the sun came out. Straight up the bowl and on to the summit with no problems. Summited 11:15AM. Pulled off a seated glissade all the way back down the bowl in about 10 minutes. Back to the car at 1PM. Great day.

Left Manker Flats parking area at 6:00 am and headed up the Ski Hut Trail. Only saw one person on the trail until I got to the Ski Hut at 7:30 am. Took the southwest ridge (the actual ski hut trail) and hit the summit at 9:00 am. Back down to Manker Flats at 11:00 am. Perfect weather!

Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2009


Climbed one of the chutes in the bowl with a group of good friends that "forjan" put together. Some went up the main trail and some up the bowl. We came down the devil's backbone. Bypassed the "crux" by climbing up to the ridge proper of the backbone then descending the ridge all the way. Very hard snow conditions in the upper bowl. All in all a great day in the mountains with great friends!

Climbed up Register Ridge then on to the summit of Baldy. Came down the Ski Hut trail. Icy near the top. Perfect weather. Had the summit to myself.

SkyPilot84Nice Summer Dayhike  Sucess!


We tried to descend the Baldy Bowl trail after coming up the other way and got a little off track. I think we got distracted by plane crash wreckage (or something resembling it). So we just went cross country back to the highway and hiked 1/4 mile back up to the car. All in all, a fun adventure.

CedarWindy (and Cold) Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2009


Took the ski lift up to the Notch at around 9:30 AM. Reached the top at 12 and went over to West Baldy for some open space (all the wind-breaks on the summit were taken). It was the windiest I've seen on the mountain. The wind made the cold quite a bit worse. Left the summit at 12:45 PM and reached the Notch at 1:50 PM. Left the Notch on the lifts at aroun 3:00 PM (after a big group of 31 went down). Now that was one COLD ride coming down with the freezing winds!

Since I see this mountain everyday, I knew I had to climb it. Hiked via the Devil's Backbone. Great views from the top stretching all the way to the Channel Islands. Beautiful wind-stunted trees along the way. Loved the hike!

Iron HikerBaldy the first time.....the Hard Way  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2009

Iron Hiker

Decided to climb Baldy from the North Backbone via Wrightwood - quite the butt-kicker. Ascended Wright, Pine, and Dawson along the way and did it all in reverse too. But it was a rewarding day in the mountains all the same!

Reclimbed via the Bowl and down via the Backbone on August 18, 2012. Clouds blowing over the top kept things cool, a very neat experience.

2nd time on Baldy this year. Once in March with more snow and this trip with little/no snow. Look forward to glissading down the bowl in the winter and spring.

Baldy Bowl is a great place in the winter for practicing snow skills. Easy to get to and a nice local snow climb. I usually stay away in the summer because it gets soooo crowded.

Sam PageComplete south ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2009

Sam Page

The ridge I am calling the south ridge is the one the ski hut trail finishes on. From Manker Flats, I descended about 100 yards, turned right on the residential road, and slid my way down to the stream bed. Then I groveled up the line of least resistance (which turned out to be a lot of resistance) to the ridge, which I followed to the intersection with the ski hut trail and on to the summit. The ridge (below the intersection) has a wild, untraveled feel, with lots of open rock and the occasional scramble. The total elevation gain is about 4200 feet, and the ascent took me 3.5 hours. I give it a class 2 rating. To my enemies I would recommend the grovel to the ridgeline, and to my friends I would recommend the walk along the ridge.

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!
