Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2011


Had been on nearby slopes underneath Timber Peak earlier in the year for work and decided I really had to go to the top of the range at some point. Stopped off on the way to Albuquerque and got to the top just in time to watch the sunset.

Would be totally lost for mountainy dates if it weren´t for Baarb. All hikes in the Maggies were a lot of fun. Really liked this one, especially the view!

strudolyubovSouth Baldy via Water Canyon Trail #11  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 27, 2010


Climbed South Baldy via Trail #11 starting from 7,600 ft. 7.6 mi round trip. Deep snow above 8,800 ft all the way to the summit (snowshoes came handy). It was snowing most of the time, but cleared up just to get some views from summit ridge.

wbassDrive/Walk  Sucess!


We drove to a point and walked the rest in the snow, and was fairly deep and extremely windy up top. Dog not happy, but managed to get in some views before a big storm rolled in.

Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2008


Climbed up and back via the Copper Canyon trail. Kinda monotonous on the approach but stellar views from the ridge crest and the summit. Plenty of mines and geocaches around to keep things extra interesting!

hans.schenkVia Copper Canyon / FS10  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2008


Climbed up to South Baldy via Copper Canyon, and shuttled down the road. The hike seemed long through the canyon, but once on the ridge the hike was extremely pleasant. The views are expansive and spectacular. Admittedly, it did seem a bit of a let down to crest the last ridge and see a road and the observatory. On the bright side...it was nice to take a car back down.

Date Climbed: Mar 2, 2008


Took the North Baldy Trail shortly after sunrise, cut the NE ridge to the summit. Nice easy hike, less than a half mile with 470 feet net elevation gain. Nice views, less the industrial clutter on the summit.

weeds19A late night drive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2003


I was in NM for work and decided to take a late night drive to the top of South Baldy. The stars were spectacular and so was the wind. My visit was short, but enjoyable.

Spent Thanksgiving with my folks in Magdalena, and drove up the Mags on Sunday (though I had been up several years ago). Beautiful clear day with a very cold wind!

surgentTwo visits  Sucess!


Visited in Spet 2000 and Sept 2005 (with my wife). Road was better in 2005 due to observatory construction on the summit area.

Great views from the summit, as it's NM's 6th most prominent peak. You can see the VLA, which is very cool.
