Yesterday, Taco and I climbed the northeast face of Mt. Baldy.  We were on snow for about 2,500 vertical feet.  Here is my trip report.

Wow, "all roads lead to Rome", but you guys took a long, tough one  Shocked awesome climb through some inhospitable terrain.

Do you know if the Ski Hut trail is clear of snow and passable without crampons yet?

Cool hike and ascent Sam and Ryan!   Very Happy  congrats on coming up with the idea and finding the way (this time!)  though the first attempt looked fun too.  do you have any desire to go back and do it again?  i would like to give it a go if you do.

Thanks folks.

mve: I heard that the Ski Hut trail is still partially snow-covered, but is passable without crampons once the snow softens.  Recent pics.

Norma: I probably won't be heading up that drainage again anytime soon, but Patrick might be game.
