i did the classic loop with some extra goodies. started at the falls road trail head just beyond (bascially at) manker flats.

took the road up to baldy notch, then the world class awesome devils backbone to the summit. didn't see anyone til the top.

decided to spice things up and took the incredibly steep north backbone trail out to the summit of Dawson for amazing views back to baldy. worth it! considered going all the way out to Pine but i also wanted to hit west baldy and i wasn't entirely sure about the brief cloud build up over baldy (turned out to be nothing). 6000 feet of climbing would have to do for the day lol. on the way back up the brutal climb to baldy i saw 3 bighorn come charging full speed down the nearly vertical talus slope of baldy. totally unbelievable!

back on baldy i cruised out to the very nice summit of west baldy - probably my favorite of the day. chilled there for a bit.

came down the painfully steep yet beautiful baldy bowl trail.

this is the hike to come to the san gabriels for folks. absolutely killer!
