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.

Twice today  Sucess!

Been doing Baldy once a month since May. Hit Baldy today on the way to West Baldy and again on the way back to Harwood, and Thunder.

wonderful day  Sucess!

Up Baldy Bowl past the ski hut, down via Devil's Backbone. Could see Catalina Island rising above the fog layer to the west!

Climbed via Ski Hut Trail  Sucess!

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.

Old baldy trail  Sucess!

Great day hike up while it was snowing from the spine up

fire road to notch then up Devil's backbone  Sucess!

Due to fresh snowfall, the scenic chair lift rides to the notch were closed for the day despite my having called ahead a few days before and being assured that they would be operating. Oh well, I guess me and my brothers Guy & Eric can say we earned it more that way. We hiked in fresh snow all the way from the parking lot and summited Mt. Harwood on the way up. We only saw four other hikers (backpackers) above the notch.

My absolute favorite place !  Sucess!

We took Devil's Backbone all the way up and then the Ski hut trail down. The last one is my absolute favorite in the winter.

Many visits, just one sign in  Sucess!

I've done this peak too many times to even count but I better sign it in just once. Summit registers shouldn't be this easy to reach :) Love this peak, trying not to wear it out. My favorite route is via the lifts but camping at the top is pretty amazing too.

Many times

I cannot say how many times I climbed this mountain since 2009.I even hiked it with a broken leg! On December 21, 2012 I broke my left fibula on the way down. I had to go down like that for 3 and a half miles in the dark. Kind of a clothes cleaned the trail. That was the longest hike of my life! The nice part of the story is the big full Moon. It was a big full Moon. I'll always remember Mount Baldy!

Too many people  Sucess!

It's sort of a given that there would be a lot of people here but it was just too much...

Hike  Sucess!

Hiked with my dad. Went up the Baldy bowl trail and descended the Devil's Backbone. Fun hike with nice views.

First Summit (via Ski Hut Trail)  Sucess!

Was I successful? Well, I survived at least. I could not find the trail above the Ski Hut, so wound up plowing straight up the right side of the Baldy Bowl through loose scree the whole way. Luckily I managed to come out right on target and didn't die before reaching the summit. I did run out of water, however, while hiking down the ski lift maintenance road to Manker Flats TH, but had a chilled bottle of water waiting for me in the car. It was a Thursday, so the lift was closed, and there was nobody at the Notch to help with water.
