Awesome alternative to hike Baldy Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2017
Awesome hike from Wrightwood up Acorn Trail, and then up the North Backbone passing Pine Mountain, Dawson Peak and then Baldy. Only 3,700' difference between start and Baldy Peak but almost 7,000' of gain on the out and back. Lots of ups and downs.
Virtually all class 1 terrain with two class 2 moves on the beginning of the ridge heading south toward Pine Mountain.
