Fun little bump  Sucess!

Nice trail to the top from the east... it's heading west that I blundered and took a scree slope down instead of the trail that was just past some bushes... Great solitude and desert views, though.

Bonus points from San Antonio Mtn  Sucess!

After a Baldy summit/sunburn nap, felt sufficiently rested to tick this off on the way back.

Two in One Day  Sucess!

Hiked up via Devil's Backbone and summitted Harwood on the way to Baldy in hot, dry, breezy weather. Then summitted Baldy and returned to Manker Flats via the Ski Hut Trail. This was my third summit of Baldy and first up Harwood.

Pleasant Detour  Sucess!

I climbed it on the way back from Baldy and found the summit more interesting than Baldy's. It also provides a few minutes of solitude away from the Baldy hordes.

Spring link up with Baldy  Sucess!

Link up of Baldy and Harwood via Devil's Backbone in what is likely the last of the spring snow. Although there was a large crowd on Baldy, I had Harwood to myself and was the first person in 8 days to sign the register.

With Baldy and West Baldy  Sucess!

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.

From Manker Flats via Register Ridge  Sucess!

Using this route in the cold season is unusual, but due to the extremely dry winter it was possible to do almost the entire Register Ridge in hiking boots. The top had snow, as did the Harwood summit. Almost blown off by the strong winds.
