Anderson Peak, Mt. Baldy, West Baldy & Mt. Harwood

Back into the mountains.....

January 31, 2012: Hiked up to Mt. Baldy via Bear Ridge, then down Register Ridge to Manker Flat. 10.3 Miles and 6,300' of gain. In a "normal" year, this would be a serious snow undertaking, but this year it was a simple summer hike, no snow.

Very Dry Year

February 5, 2012: Anderson Peak, 11.5 Miles, +4,300'. Got to dust off the snowshoes for a wonderful Super Bowl Sunday climb to Anderson Peak. Started up the Forsee Creek Trail and was greeted with ice at 7500'. From there until 9100' it was microspikes, then it was finally time to don the snowshoes. Great conditions up the North Ridge/Bowl to the summit area. Great little hike.
