first time  Sucess!

Ascended "Once is Enough" chute between Dusties Dare and the Hourglass. Snow was in great shape, spring like. Fun local mountain!

Baldy Bowl  Sucess!

Went with Taco and crew to practice arrest skills and ascend the bowl. A beautiful day but windy as hell on top.

Great mountain!  Sucess!

I'm a local so this is a favorite: Baldy Bowl, RR, North Ridge, Backbone, and ski hut trail.

Ran up on a beautiful day  Sucess!

In town for my sister's XC meet---ran up the regular route, chilled on the top (it was cold!), and then came down the devil's backbone route which was INCREDIBLE. Great views, great pictures, great running!

Baldy with snow  Sucess!

Up via ski hut and down via the devil's backbone. It was absolutely still up at the summit for a bit - absolutely NO wind! That road sucks at the end sucks. I still wish the ski lifts were running that day.

Ski Hut to the Register Trail  Sucess!

Met Diving Dan at the trailhead and he gave me the grand tour on Mount Baldy. Very cool day!

Spectacular ridge  Sucess!

Mount Baldy is the beautiful, bulky, and bald head of the San Gabriels. There is a nice alpine forest present on its slopes, but the summit, however, is nothing but rocks. Winter time brings forth good amounts of snow, which makes both the Baldy Bowl and the Devil's Backbone excellent arenas for mountaineers.
Have done the Devil's Backbone from TR and San Antonio Ski Hut Trail back down in August.

Nice  Sucess!

Up Baldy Bowl, down Devil's Backbone. Nice hike but didn't like the road much.

Numb toes!  Sucess!

Climbed via Blue Ridge route. Lots of loose rock on the way, some class 3 scrambling. Did 3 summits: Pine Mountain, Mount Dawson, and Baldy. Round trip in little over 9 hrs. Very strenuous hike, all the travel is either up or down the slopes. Good, comfortable boots will make all the difference.

Had to come back  Sucess!

Was back in the area on business again so had to head up to Baldy after meetings. Starting from the ski lift parking lot, did the trail under the ski lifts up to the notch, then the backbone. Up in 1:45, down in a fun 0:45. Car to summit to car: 2:30. Ran into only three persons on the trail on a Thursday evening.

Father's Day  Sucess!

I told my sons that all I wanted for Father's Day was for them to accompany me up Mt. Baldy. They agreed, and after a quick drive from San Diego & breakfast at IHOP we were on the Manker Flats trail by 9:45. I missed the Sierra Hut trail, and we ended up taking the fire road up to the ski hut. They bailed at that point so I did a quick push to the summit and back via Devil's backbone. 4 hours from car to summit to car. Although it would have been better to share the top with my sons, it was a great day all around.

Ran to the ridge on Bear Canyon Trail

Business meetings got out early, so I took advantage of the opportunity in the afternoon. Should have picked an easier trail and summited.

Son and Dad Trip  Sucess!

My son's first time up to the top. Great day. Great weather. Little snow, but lots of wind.

Scenic and snowcovered  Sucess!

Last minute trip made very scenic with all the snow on top, just went in regular hiking boots. Was my 9th CA county HP and the last one I did inadvertently before I started going for them intentionally.

Baldy Bowl!  Sucess!

The Baldy Bowl was a fun route. Whiteout conditions pretty much the whole day. Crampons and ice axe still needed past the ski hut.
