Howdy Wild,

That is the famous Steve Fossett -- the uber hiker, not the aviator Cool I met him on my first C2C (Palm Springs to the top of San Jacinto to the tram) on Cinco de Mayo in 2007. He took one look at me at the summit, saw how trashed I was and kindly accompanied me back to the tram. At that time, he had completed over 150 full C2C's -- wouldn't be surprised if he's close to 200 now. Great guy.

Miles of smiles,
Ellen

Hi, has anyone been up the main trail to the summit recently?  Any news on current conditions would be most appreciated!  I'd like to head up on Sunday without winter gear.

Thanks,

Leslie,
There is a Baldy discussion on the Whitney Portal Message Board, lots of links to pictures from last weekend in the posts
http://www.whitneyportalstore.com...Number=83784&page=1#Post83784 .

There will be snow in the trees on the ridge climb away from the bowl for another month or more, but most of the trail is snow free. Many people go without winter gear, but some use microsppikes or crampons.

PostPosted: Mon May 09, 2011 8:01 pm    Post subject: Mt Baldy Conditions? Reply with quote

Thinking of heading up to Mt Baldy and completing the summit loop in a few Sundays, 5/22 to be exact.  I was wondering if anyone has been up there recently and could tell me how the conditions are, specifically if there is any snow on the trail/summit/devils backbone?  A couple of us plan to go but we have no experience with hiking in the snow or using crampons so it would probably be wise for us to wait a bit should the trail still be covered with snow.  Any info is appreciated.  Thanks

There's some recent TR's on this location in the trip report section of the site.

Matt C and I went up there last week on 05/04/11
http://sangabrielmnts.myfreeforum.org/about3792.html

GigaMike went up there 05/07/11
http://sangabrielmnts.myfreeforum.org/about3802.html

There's still some snow at the upper portions of the ski-hut trail, that you have to traverse around or up to the ridge.  Theres also still large patches of snow atop baldy, and a large 100 yard patch or so from the peak down towards harwood.  There's also a very narrow 30 yard section on the backbone that is in poor shape and dangerous if you're not sure footed.

I was actually thinking about Cucamonga on Saturday.  

The National Weather Service is having a hard time predicting the path of this cutoff low and this mornings forecast warned that precipitation potential could be reduced as the models refine the path of the event.

We were promised unsettled weather and snow and we were not disappointed. Surprisingly, it was  cold and windy on the summit. The snow was down to the Parking Lot in the morning but did not last; I guess winter will arrive soon, but not this weekend. If it gets cold soon the trails will be icy.

BEFORE at 6:30AM

Do crampons work in mud?

If you can get up there in the next couple days, things are pretty good up top. Not quite winter winter, but definitely worthy of a trip up and an early season hint of what's to come.

I'm hiking to the ski hut in the morning with a friend. Anybody seen the trail lately? I imagine the trail is mostly well trampled by now but wanted to verify we would have no trouble without spikes.

I haven't been there but, it's difficult to say what you'd consider conditions that'd require micro spikes.

I personally feel if there is ice (Snow), you should have them along

Most(?) winter accidents in the san gabs are slipping on ice. Some are very experienced people, though the more you're out there the more risk you're taking.

Any word on the current conditions? What type of traction is needed--microspikes, crampons, snowshoes? Planning on a hike this Saturday so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was up via the Ski Hut on Friday, December 2.  The only real snow is beyond the Hut and before the ridge.  Microspkies made it easier over that stretch.

Not quite Cucamonga, but... I did Falling Rock Canyon to Ontario then Bighorn and down Icehouse Canyon last Sunday.  We chose this route to stay on the north side and enjoy the bit of snow we had.  There looked to be nice coverage on Cuc's north slope and the deepest snow we had all day was on Bighorn.  Curious to know what the north slopes are still holding.  I'll watch for reports.  Link to my pix from 11/27:

The Bear Canyon (or Old Mt Baldy) Trail starts down in the Village across form the Baldy Lodge. Head up the road with the church, you'll pass several cabins and in about 1/2 a mile come to the official start of the trail, with a metal register much like the one on the Ski Hut Trail and a sign indicating the distance to the summit. I highly, highly recommend this route; 6000+ feet of gain and much less crowded than the other routes, varying scenery, etc.

Wow, that seems blazing fast. I've never hiked Baldy so I don't have a great feel for how long the RT hike usually takes, but I had planned for about double your time. I'm guessing you're an exceptionally strong hiker and that most normal human beings would be in the 7-8 hours. Is that accurate? Don't be modest.  Wink

I tend to "move it right along."  

My wife walks frequently but is not a regular hiker.  She and I had an enjoyable hike up Baldy via the Ski Hut Trail in 2010 -- her first Baldy trip.  We were passing some people and being passed by others.    We took 3:30 going up and 6:40 round trip, including 30 minutes at the summit.

Want to do BAden Powell or similar this Sunday since has not rained/snowed in weeks.  Any chance of doing w/out the spikes?

Someone else will have to comment on Baden Powell.  I have not been there lately.  Baldy can certainly be done in just boots at this point.  Extra traction helped going up to the ridge at 8800' or so, but there were people going up with and without such traction.

I smell a newbe here! Hey, you need to tell us which animal you relate with as you move your body around the forrest:

Turtle: easy does it, care free hiking here, looking for any excuse to make long stops; easily intimidated when being passed by the roadrunners, when they look ahead and see a challenge, ops! its time to turn around.

Rabbit:Steadily moving along in an effortless pace, looking forward to the next challenge that lies ahead on the trail. Will glance around a bit to enjoy the scenery.

Roadrunners:speeeeeeeeeeeeeeed is most important here! Everybody get out of my way! They only have time to "trail gaze"and be the first to reach the top , also they like to show off the numbers.

A great practice trek for Baldy ski hut trek- you need to summit for a valid test- is:

Turtles: Mt Lowe, from  Lake Av, the whole(3piece) Sam Merrill Trail
Rabbits: The grand Old MT Wilson Trail from Sierra Madre
Roadrunners: Rattle Snake Peak Trail, you know where that is! You can zooooooom around the whole forrest in a single day.

Now that you know which camp you belong(and you don't have to tell us) , go on to Baldy and plz post a report on sat when you get back home... enjoy the mountain and  have hell of a good time!!!          666

What what?
Ski hut, you ask?
To find out, a simple task.

ok enuf of that.  The BBC contingent was up there on Sunday. The trail was mostly dry  or slush and then above the hut was fresh dusting of snow. My friend's teenage son made his first Baldy summit via the west bowl, up and down, wearing instep spikes. Not enough white stuff for ice ax...

I don't think there has been much more snow up there this week. Supposed to be really windy tomorrow, though.

Check out photos taken Sunday by Shinmeister and Ryan B.  Razz

Two questions! Where can I find said pictures?

And two, is it bootable? Supposed to be warm temps this week into next and I imagine there will be a pretty good foot path thru any snow, but just want to know that my buddies will be fine next Wednesday!

I hiked Baldy on Monday and there were some icy spots on the Ski Hut Trail which posed a slipping hazard but other than that the trail is totally passable.

I was aware of the 60mph winds that were to be present around the Baldy area. The brave Koreans and another person that I know, who sent me this link, managed to go to the top! You all must like to be pushed around by the wind. Having been at the top with about 45mph and not be allowed to breathe easily, I rather avoid this kind of scene from happening to me again. Plz note that vid#1 is shot on the top of the first ridge past the bowl.....666

Taco, its time to get out of the canyons for a change and hit the ridges,
starting with this one when the winds show up.
Lets see if you can make it to the top or be gone with the wind!!!...666

Took a little hike up the ski hut trail.  Trail is snow free up to the hut.
I stopped at the hut and went down.  From the hut though, you cansee some patches in the shaded area that lead up to the ridge.

From the freeway, you can see afaint thin white snow line at the summit.
I am just guessing that the summit trail is all open, I mean snowfree.

I went to the top yesterday. Marginal snow coverage and fairly icy, but manageable going up to the ridge through the trees past ski hut. Quite a bit of people descending the bowl with no snow. No snow up top either.

IS the trail covered with snow,  above the hut?
I know 3 weeks ago, I was able to reach the ridgeabove the hut with relative ease --- even though the shady area above the granite field was covered in snow....

Anyone been there lately?

Last Sunday we got up Skihut and down to the Notch and there was maybe a 10 minute patch of snow above the bowl. After this weeks sprinkling there might be a dusting up there but I doubt it was much. Maybe somebody else has been up there after the rain.

I'm heading up tomorrow morning, Register Ridge to Harwood, Baldy, and West, then descending the Ski Hut.  I'll post conditions when I get back.  Hopefully the system that rolled through earlier this week left some slippery stuff.

Patchy snow, windy, spikes useful on the shaded switchback section on the Ski Hut Trail but not necessary.

On Sunday I passed two mountaineers on the San Antonio Falls Rd that, by the looks of their gear, where headed to the summit. They asked if that is where we came from. We were only out snowshoeing the lower parts. I would also love to hear some reports from higher up the mountain. Not sure if our trip report will help, http://sangabrielmnts.myfreeforum.org/sutra40286.php#40286
