San Antonio, West Baldy, and Mount Harwood  Sucess!

A great winter snowclimb with Bryan. During the ascent we had to dodge huge potentially fatal ice bombs falling from the trees. On the summits, 45mph winds were whipping up major spindrift. We descended from the Antonio / Harwood saddle in a sudden white out and the slope turned out to be icy and sketchy. I fell twice and had to arrest with my axe. We should have brought crampons.

A film by Bryan:

Snowy   Sucess!

I hiked over from Main Baldy a few times. I always remembered the time in spring when the snow was boilerplate in some places on the hike over. That was before I lived in Wyoming where snow is much more part of life then in SoCal. Its below zero outside right now.

Traverse from Baldy  Sucess!

Good way to pad your summit stats. Usually empty even when Mt. Baldy is crowded.

6 Peaks 8000 Feet  Sucess!

The hike to West Baldy (9988’) from Baldy was .6 miles with an elevation gain of 148’. The view was amazing, and it seemed like we were on an island in the clouds up there. After taking some pictures we made our way back .6 miles and up 224’ to Mount Baldy. We hurried the 2.6 miles back down the trail to the lodge because we wanted to be back in time to ride the ski left down to Manker Flat.

Finally  Sucess!

Finally I made it over to West Baldy. I climbed Baldy from the Register Ridge and then headed over to West Baldy, checked out San Antonio Ridge for a little bit and returned via Ski Hut trail. Few snow patches on the traverse from Baldy.

Wasn't sure which one was which  Sucess!

I was on top of Baldy and West Baldy looked higher to me. When I got to West Baldy the error of my ways was apparent. Foot deep snow made the traverse fun.

2 or 3 times  Sucess!

I usually tag this one when going up or down the Bear Canyon Trail.

From the Village  Sucess!

Bagged it on the way back from Old Baldy. The ridge looks tempting...
