Notch-Backbone-Bowl Loop  Sucess!

Very enjoyable hike with great views from Devil's Backbone. Got hot coming down the bowl. What's with the tourists climbing in jeans?! Added Mt. Harwood and West Baldy for grins.

Ski Hut Trail  Sucess!

Mt wife and I have gone up this route a few times over the past few months in order to prepare for Kilimanjaro. Beautiful mountain.

Ski hut trail up, lift down  Sucess!

Enjoyable hike up the ski hut trail and then down the backbone to the ski lift. Rode the lift down to the parking. Beautiful day up there. Went up with Gabriela, Mike, Deanne, Berta, Bill, Charley, and Dan. There was a group celebrating a birthday on the summit and had a big birthday cake, a cooler with soda, and made turkey wraps for lunch.

up Baldy Bowl, down Devil's Backbone  Sucess!

3rd of 5 summits (and a great technical canyon) this weekend.

This was a particularly enjoyable peak. Easy, but aesthetic, trail hike to a busy, but stellar, summit!

#9 I think  Sucess!

Left late sat night and camped at 8500' on the ridge from bear flat at 11pm. The city lights are amazing from up here. Spooked a couple of deer (?) all I saw was glowing eyes...hope they were deer. Up at dawn and on to the summit; tagged west Baldy and Harwood on the way to the notch. Wimped out with my new boots and took the lift down.

14th time  Sucess!

Love this mountain, this is where I am home. Saw lots of bighorn today, 1st pack was 3 females, 2nd pack was 2 females, and the 3rd pack was 5 males, awesome and very close within 50 of us. Took old favorite Ski Hut up and down.

Twist on a favorite  Sucess!

Climbed to ski hut, and then continued straight up the bowl. The exposure was cool, and the loose scree got my blood running fast a few times. It was beautiful on the summit. I had it all to myself and I took a nap.

Windy  Sucess!

About the 5th or 6th climb for me. This time from manker flats via the ski hut trail, then back down via the backbone and nunder the ski lift. It was windy and cold on top despite being warm down in the city. Views are always amazing.

Baldy big loop  Sucess!

Up Bear ck summit at 8pm. Spent the night just below the summit under a bush to get out of the wind. What a beautiful sight-- all the city lights and a three quarter moon. Almost had to crawl to Harwood due to the WIND. Finished by hiking the 3T's to Icehouse cyn Sunday morning.

Up ski hut down the backbone

Nice weather, no snow below the ski hut, very little after that. Perfect blue sky day

Ski hut trail  Sucess!

Weather was great, but snow was almost none existant:(
Other than that, had good views and got to see some interesting stuff, two gliders, and some idiots in a 4x4 coming down the lower portion of the backbone trail=0 I hiked up with great people for a great ending at the Baldy Lodge for an early dinner.

Many Times  Sucess!

Been up seven times. Baldy Village or Other Devil's Backbone(via the North) are interesting alternatives to the usual routes.
