Fall down Baldy Bowl

Climbed up to the top of the Baldy Bowl. My GPS said I was 300 feet from the top. However, I slipped and fell... all the way down to the ski hut. I probably should have died, but I caught a tree on the way down. There were 6 other climbers who witnessed it. My GPS says I fell 1000 feet.

Thanksgiving Sunrise Baldy Hike  Sucess!

For my inaugural Baldy hike I went up Ski Hut Route and down Devil's Backbone. The sad part was when I was hiking down underneath the ski lift I was actually going faster than the lift. On the other hand, this hike was so beautiful I did it 2 more times in that month. It's been the perfect mountain to introduce myself to winter mountaineering!

Loop  Sucess!

Hiked a loop up the Baldy Bowl trail and down the Devil's Backbone. Very little snow, and took about 2.25 hours up, and 4h 20m round trip. My 33rd ultra prominence peak.

Nice trip out.  Sucess!

I have avoided this one for years, but finally felt it was time to hit up an LA classic. A bit windy on the top and the crowds were insane, but beautiful none the less.

from Devils backbone  Sucess!

Nice 3 peak day. Not too crowded on a Friday in mid-November.

3 peak traverse  Sucess!

Three peak traverse. Why haven't I come to California in November earlier. Via Devils Backbone.

nice loop hike  Sucess!

My hike of Baldy got off to a tough start when I had trouble finding the trail. I slipped on some loose rocks and cut my arm. I concluded that the mountain was impossible to climb this way so I turned back. Then I found the trail and had a great loop hike over the ski trails, Devils backbone and then down the other trail. The LA basin was covered in fog.

3-Peak Repeat  Sucess!

Beginning to make this a pattern Mankr-DBB-Baldy-WBaldy-Baldy-Harwood-DBB-Mankr- why climb one when you can climb all three along the same ridge?

A SoCal Classic!  Sucess!

It gets crowded but what can you do? It's a fun hike to the summit no matter which way you choose!

Adventure 16 3-Peak Challenge!  Sucess!

Climbed this as part of the Adventure 16 3-Peak Challenge. I hiked Mount San Antonio, Mount San Gorgonio, and Mount San Jacinto in three days (nearly 41 miles). Very challenging! For this first peak, I camped at Manker Flat then hiked up the fairly steep and strenuous Ski Hut Trail in very hot weather. I then managed to get stung by a bee in the armpit at the summit! Overall, an excellent hike.

My 12th summit  Sucess!

Went up the Bear Canyon Trail, down the Ski Hut Trail, then got a ride from Manker Flat back to my car in the Village.

Fitness Check via Ski Hut Trail  Sucess!

A fitness check 4 weeks before a big trip. Late and hot start on a Memorial Day afternoon.

Devils Backbone  Sucess!

Nice day with my dad and brother. Took a bit longer as my dad hikes a bit slower these days but for a 78 year old person I think that's ok! Nice to get out.

Success on Mount Baldy  Sucess!

Hiked to the summit via Devil's Backbone under perfect weather conditions, alongside wounded veterans and others climbing to raise money for injured veterans through The Heroes Project. Met and spoke with Tim Medvetz from Discovery Channel's Everest: Beyond the Limit who founded The Heroes Project. Awesome guy doing awesome things!

second attempt  Sucess!

My first attempt via Bear Canyon took too long, so I turned around.
I went straight up Baldy Bowl this time. Good fun in the sun and snow.

Mount San Antonio  Sucess!

First of the Three Saints on this three day weekend. Fun hike with Jobe hitting Harwood first, then Baldy and West Baldy.

Cali double  Sucess!

A perfectly sunny and beautiful day for a hike with my friend Rachel. We took the devils backbone route after stopping at the Baldy Notch. Decided to bag Harwood on the way back.
Quite a bit easier and much more straight forward than lots of the info I had read prior to going..Stayed in t-shirt at the summit it was so calm and comfortable. Great views everywhere, including Catalina Island - despite the distinct layer of smog enshrouding LA down below..

the Loop  Sucess!

In May hiked the Backbone to the Bowl. In october hiked the Bowl to the Backbone. Love this mountain. Quite steep for the duration of the hike, yet short enough in distance and elevation that it is a pleasant day hike...
