From Mt. Baldy Village via Bear Canyon  Sucess!

Needing to warm up for C2C the following week, took the Bear Canyon trail for a speed ascent. Tagged West Baldy for extra credit and extra gain on the way back.

Went up the ski hut trail which was warmer than a month ago. Down the backbone with a tiny bit of wind and some beers at the notch before heading back to the car. Carried 45lbs to start training for Rainier next summer

Mt. Baldy  Sucess!

Hiked from the service road near the ski hut to the Notch to Devils backbone to summit. Lots of people out that day, really fun and took us 6 hours total. Rang the bell on the way back and had a delich burger at Baldy Cafe down in town. Loved it

via Ski Lift  Sucess!

Did a quick run up Baldy before my flight out on Sunday. Amazing that you can get up to 10k ft so close to LA!

A little dicey but you gotta try this!  Sucess!

My last summit of Baldy was in April of 2011. We went up Manker Flat and down the devils backbone/the Notch. Total time was about 6 hours, largely because I got some nasty vertigo coming down a snowfield on Harwood towards the backbone. Kickstepping was the name of the game but obviously everything worked out just fine...just be very very careful on the backbone!

The Village trail is also a good one, but adds 2000' of elevation gain with almost the same distance. Give that one a shot someday, it has amazing views and no one on it usually.

Surprisingly low amount of snow for the time of the year. Trail was regular except for some icy patches above the hut while gaining the top of the Bowl.
