Visited West Baldy for the first time, after ascent via Register Ridge and traversing Mt Hardwood's 'ridge' off-trail from end-to-end on the way to Baldy summit. Been meaning to visit West Baldy whenever I see it from up top. Baldy was too busy for my liking today so I headed straight for West Baldy without stopping. It's really pleasant there and quiet - had the peak to myself for almost an hour during lunch time. All in all surprising given that it's a mere stones throw from the area's feature headliner.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2014
Drove down from the Bay Area for a conference in Palm Springs - after visiting the downtown LA library I drove up to Manker Flat and hiked up to the ski lodge and took the Devil's Backbone trail up to Baldy with a side visit to West Baldy and Harwood on a fine afternoon. Barely any snow to be found anywhere, and none on the trail. Trip report is HERE.

This was more of an after thought having reached the summit of Mt. Baldy with too much energy to spare. It looks closer than it is, and I took me 45 minutes they and back. There was some snow and I did post hole quite abit. My son was extremely patient yet cold by the time I got back.

Heather and I took off at 7PM and topped out around 11PM during the Venus transit. What a beautifully windy night to spend up there with a tasty bottle of wine. :)

A great winter snowclimb with Bryan. During the ascent we had to dodge huge potentially fatal ice bombs falling from the trees. On the summits, 45mph winds were whipping up major spindrift. We descended from the Antonio / Harwood saddle in a sudden white out and the slope turned out to be icy and sketchy. I fell twice and had to arrest with my axe. We should have brought crampons.

A film by Bryan:
