ScottWhitneyBoundFirst Summit (via Ski Hut Trail)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2009


Was I successful? Well, I survived at least. I could not find the trail above the Ski Hut, so wound up plowing straight up the right side of the Baldy Bowl through loose scree the whole way. Luckily I managed to come out right on target and didn't die before reaching the summit. I did run out of water, however, while hiking down the ski lift maintenance road to Manker Flats TH, but had a chilled bottle of water waiting for me in the car. It was a Thursday, so the lift was closed, and there was nobody at the Notch to help with water.

Car camped at Manker Flat. Dinner at Mt. Baldy Lodge. Big crowds on Mount Baldy but never a problem.

I've been up twice, once during a dry January and again the same Summer. Lovely hiking, with some amazing flora and fauna. Watch for bighorns!

jjoshuagregorySunset Hike: Manker Loop (Ski Hut to Backbone).  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 2014


Ski Hut is 100% snow free all the way up. A few patches of snow off the north of the summit can be used to replenish water supply>

Still breezy and cool. Perfect hiking weather. Cold at night.

The Pleiades and Orion guarded the west while Ares and The Lion domineered the east. Love the stars...

Link up of Baldy and Harwood via Devil's Backbone in what is likely the last of the spring snow.

Date Climbed: Feb 22, 2014
Drove down from the Bay Area for a conference in Palm Springs - after visiting the downtown LA library I drove up to Manker Flat and hiked up to the ski lodge and took the Devil's Backbone trail up to Baldy with a side visit to West Baldy and Harwood on a fine afternoon. Barely any snow to be found anywhere, and none on the trail. Trip report is HERE.

3rd time up, but the first time not taking the Devil's Backbone. Althougth a bit steeper, it is definately more scenic.

SEEING TRAILS HIKE GANG full-moon-lunar-eclipse night hike. Went up via Baldy Bowl trail, reached the summit, traversed the Devil's Backbone and came down the Baldy Notch trail. Very windy and exposed on the summit. Lots of fun.

Started hiking at 9pm to break in new mountaineering shoes and train for another hike. Brought up the jet boil and made hot chocolate at the top and saw all the city lights and stars above. Awesome experience.

HohnikerGreat one  Sucess!


Done it a half dozen times or so in the past few years, via Ski Hut, Devil's Backbone and Bear Canyon. The last one is my favorite since there are so few people on it.

Went up the steep part, then down the Devil's backbone and rode the chairlift down. A great view and not too far from LA.
