Stayed at Kelly camp over the weekend. Not very busy, a beautiful hike up to the peak.

Finally completed this hike on 5/16/15, and I have to say it far exceeded my expectations. Due to a recent storm, the summit, and most of the trail from the backbone up, was covered in 6-10 inches of snow. I was the second person up to the summit that day from the Devil's Backbone route, so I was potholing for about the last 1,500 feet. Due to this, I exerted far more energy than I expected, and in hindsight, wish I had eaten more calories that morning. But due to the snow, I think many hikers stayed away that say, thus leaving the mountain for myself and a handful of other ambitious climbers. In short, it was truly a spiritual experience and I expect to go back as soon as possible. Took me 7 hours, having gone down the Ski Hut trail. I recommend not taking the ski lift, to get the full experience. I'm glad I skipped it. The Devils Backbone was a little sketchy with the recent snowfall, and I wish I had some crampons or microspikes, but no biggie.

Did this one a couple months back. Beautiful day. Went up the steep side, hit the summit, then Devils backbone and avoided the chairlift to get the full experience. Here's a video I made if you wanna check out the beauty.

Climbed Baldy again on May 9. Lots of snow when we started but started melting quickly later that day. Took the ski hut trail this time to go up the summit and took the devil's backbone to ski lift then the trail to the lower parking area. Total of 15.14 miles.

Mt. Baldy Notch Trail

Took the lift up to the Notch. Devils Backbone to the peak. Manker flats trail down. Hiked back to lift parking lot. WRONG DIRECTION. Do the reverse. Manker Flats is too hard on the IT bands and it is better to get some food at the Notch at the end.
