Regarding the missing Korean woman. It’s seems strange that if she went missing on Sat, I didn’t see any SAR activity on Sunday. I drove thru Baldy village around~12:30 and didn’t see any search activities getting started at either the ranger station or fire station. Anyhow, glad to hear they got the SAR started and I’m hoping for the best. Here’s news link:

Ha, I totally remember that! I was just behind him :). He's on here too (SJ).

I can't remember exactly but I think the SAR guy said it was only called in shortly before we got there.

Hey Graham,

Nice to meet you briefly yesterday as well. I was the good looking one of the group (not Bruno or the tall guy with the tiny pack) :D

He means the one we had to wait for because he was too hungover to move quickly :mrgreen:

Went up to Baldy and hiked the bowl on the 23rd. There is great coverage in the bowl. That storm layed it down like concrete though, the 23rd was the first day of sunshine after the storm and it felt like the snow that had been sitting in the sun for a week. Spring conditions, but very stable, and great boot-packing up the bowl. The hike in was horrendous though, post-holing to my waist at times. It's never taken me so long to get to the hut - 3 hours!!!! :shock: I was expecting it to be crowded, but I guess the road closure kept people away.

The road was "closed" on the 23rd when I was there. I sweet-talked my way in. It was pretty thrashed from all the rain they got down low. I would imagine that by now they have it looking pretty good. I heard from a friend that he went to the baldy ski resort yesterday, so I would imagine the road is open now.

Anybody know the conditions up there? Snowshoes? Crampons?
