This trip report has been done recently, so we won't elaborate too much.  It's a bit of a hoof up to Mt Baldy, so we knew we'd be doing a little headlamping with our RTD start of 6:20pm.  The heat of the day was getting better, though, which made the 4200 foot climb just a tad easier.  Key word: tad.  clown.gif  We consumed plenty of water on our "breathers" and finally reached the summit 2 hrs later.


We met another couple hiking up for the sunset lights on Baldy, so we delayed awhile before heading back down with them.


A fun and worthwhile Race the Darkness trip.

Definitely!  It was about 10pm before it was necessary to don the headlamps.  Love this time of year!  agree.gif

Phil....could have been possible, but there was no one fitting that description up there.  Just the really nice couple we met and another guy (not that age, though.)  We're sure glad he walked out alright, though.   smile.gif

Nice one guys  up.gif. If done again in the future, I would highly recommend continuing along the ridge to the summit of Gray Wolf Peak. The views are tremendous! Nice job  hockeygrin.gif.

Skimpyphud - We were planning to do Greywolf Peak, but Jeremy had clients he had to meet with earlier in the day so we only had time for a RTD instead of a full day hike.  We would really like to follow the ridge from Baldy to the Needles, hitting Greywolf along the way.
