Very nice and warm day. Windy and a little cool on the summit. Climbed with friends Dan and Gary. Some snow beyond the ski hut and near the summit but nothing major.

After cold temps and snow falling during the previous week - thought this would be a great time for some winter climbing and views from Mt Baldy. I started from Baldy Notch about 10 AM. With breaks and moderate pace - about 2.5 hours up and 1.5 hours down. Temps were warm most of the climb until above 9000 ft with Wind chill. Snow was fairly solid along devils backbone with little post holeing on the way up. Not so good on the way down in the afternoon. Sinking in to my knees in some spots. On the way up - didn't need cramps at all - put them on for some sections on the way down. Had ice axe out on the backbone both ways though. Great views from the summit in all directions. Coming from home at Sea level only a few hours before I was feeling the thin air at the top, but felt good all the same

Nice day. Climbed with forjan. Crampons required in the chutes just above and west of the hut. Light rock fall in the chutes. Later in the day the snow softened up. Icy in spots.

A beautiful hike from all sides. In September 2000 my son and I, with some friends, did a traverse beginning in Wrightwood and ending by descending the Bear Canyon trail. Very enjoyable hike. Yesterday we ascended via the Ski Hut trail, though we went up the bare icy slope rather than the switchbacks through the trees (just past the Ski Hut). We got a chance to try out the new crampons and ice axe. Very nice.

The weather was great today. I wore shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes. I brought a light jacket, but only used it near the summit. I only saw one other person the whole time. Didn't need an ice-axe, crampons or snowshoes. The deepest snow I encountered was shin-deep and there were only a few small patches of that. I ran some of the trail. Round trip time -- 2:45 min

Beautiful, crisp, cool morning. Assended the San Antonio Ski Hut Route and came down the Devil's Backbone to the Baldy Notch. Then took the easy way the rest of the way down. Great views from the top. Could see Catalina Island above all the fog and Southern California haze. Had great views of the Mohave Desert and beyond to the Southern Sierra. Also could see San Gorgonio, Baden-Powell and San Jacinto.

A good day hike, with fine views from the top. Afterwards, we treated ourselves to dinner & beers at the brewery in Upland! I would like to do this in the winter sometime & stay a night or two at the Sierra Club Hut.

I have no idea how many times I have hiked to the top of Mt. Baldy. Maybe 25 or 30 times using all four routes and in all seasons. My favorite time of year to climb Baldy is winter. Even though it's Southern California Baldy gets a good amount of snow and is a great day climb and a good chance to use winter equipment.
