Date Climbed: Apr 10, 2011


My last summit of Baldy was in April of 2011. We went up Manker Flat and down the devils backbone/the Notch. Total time was about 6 hours, largely because I got some nasty vertigo coming down a snowfield on Harwood towards the backbone. Kickstepping was the name of the game but obviously everything worked out just fine...just be very very careful on the backbone!

The Village trail is also a good one, but adds 2000' of elevation gain with almost the same distance. Give that one a shot someday, it has amazing views and no one on it usually.

Surprisingly low amount of snow for the time of the year. Trail was regular except for some icy patches above the hut while gaining the top of the Bowl.

Nice day but very steady, strong winds. Windy on the summit and most of the way down. Came down straight from the ski lodge following the lift. That can be a pain. Especially in the stong uphill winds following your girlfried on a warm, dusty day. pff..pff (spitting sound)

From Manker flats with Aj and Md on a really nice day. Carried ax and crampons even though we never used them. Most of the trail was snow free.

Second ascent - the trail from Bear Canyon is one of the best training hikes in all of SoCal due to elev. gain.

My plan was to climb all the local peaks in prep for my first 14er this year. Last weekend we climbed Mt Pinos which is 8800ft. We started at 6000ft reaching the summit at 8800ft and back down in only 5hrs 20 min. So our next and closest peak was mt baldy. Since California is having a snow problem and most peaks have no snow we decided to give Baldy a try. We parked and started the trail around 9:30 since we were all in good shape we hit the peak at around 12:15pm since snow wasnt a factor this year. it was a solid push the entire time with little breaks. The peak was extremely cold with viscous wind. After a few pics and food we headed back down. we kept a quick pace and were pushing for the end rest and food. all in all it took us 5hrs to the summit and back. Good times.
