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.

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.

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...

Frequent this Training Peak  Sucess!

Since Mt Baldy is local to me it's a great training peak that I frequent throughout the year from snow conditions to dry conditions.

Hiked to the top via the Ski Hut trail, then took the Devil's backbone trail down to Baldy Notch (with a stop off to summit Mt. Harwood), and wimped out by taking the ski lift the rest of the way down.
