The trip up isn't that interesting. First, you walk an old fire road, then you get to walk on the sunny side of a hot rocky creek valley.

We thought about climbing the south ridge of Baldy, but it looked steep and rugged.

|The route up skirts the rocks to the right, then heads up|
|5 folks on the ridge. Two others were climbing|
On the way down, at least the views of Nakiska and Mt. Sparrowhawk were nice.
