StartingOverGreat hike but steep  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2015


Hiked to the top via the Ski Hut trail, then took the Devil's backbone trail down to Baldy Notch (with a stop off to summit Mt. Harwood), and wimped out by taking the ski lift the rest of the way down.

Date Climbed: Dec 20, 2012


Got off-route in the bowl and had to don the crampons, but from the bowl it was a fun snow climb to the summit. Returned via Devil's Backbone/fire road. 1 ft of snow on average that mostly fell 2 days before. No need for snowshoes since it had already mostly set up.

Weekend hike with my Dad on both 7/14 and 8/25 (this is our favorite way up Baldy). However took the backbone trail down. Great views, but a little crowded as always.

Wanted to get an Alpine start, my bed said no. Got on the trail at 9:45ish and up on top by 1 or so. Came back down to the east and skipped the bowl. Burned A LOT of calories and ticked another one off the list. Great day and great views and ominous fog rolled in...

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2008


Got stuck behind a group of five that were 1) Not speaking any english, and 2) did not seem to want to let anyone get past them! Otherwise, a beautiful day, and a great trail. I have heard about the ski hut over and over, but I never imagined how beautiful it would be!

Hiked up to Ski Hut from Mankers Flat and up to Mount Baldy on a nice and warm day in June. Quite cold and windy on the summit.
