gimpilatorSan Antonio, West Baldy, and Mount Harwood  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2011


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:

wyopeakMikeSnowy   Sucess!


I hiked over from Main Baldy a few times. I always remembered the time in spring when the snow was boilerplate in some places on the hike over. That was before I lived in Wyoming where snow is much more part of life then in SoCal. Its below zero outside right now.

Good way to pad your summit stats. Usually empty even when Mt. Baldy is crowded.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009


The hike to West Baldy (9988’) from Baldy was .6 miles with an elevation gain of 148’. The view was amazing, and it seemed like we were on an island in the clouds up there. After taking some pictures we made our way back .6 miles and up 224’ to Mount Baldy. We hurried the 2.6 miles back down the trail to the lodge because we wanted to be back in time to ride the ski left down to Manker Flat.

Date Climbed: Dec 12, 2008


Finally I made it over to West Baldy. I climbed Baldy from the Register Ridge and then headed over to West Baldy, checked out San Antonio Ridge for a little bit and returned via Ski Hut trail. Few snow patches on the traverse from Baldy.

Date Climbed: Nov 28, 2008


I was on top of Baldy and West Baldy looked higher to me. When I got to West Baldy the error of my ways was apparent. Foot deep snow made the traverse fun.
