Ascent of Old Baldy on 2010-07-21
|Date:||Wednesday, July 21, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6339 ft / 1932 m|
Ascent Trip ReportGood Road approaching Old Baldy from Dead Indian Memorial Road. The road ends near the PCT. There is no sign indicating it, but the PCT is about 200 ft northeast from the parking area. The PCT travels around Old Baldy on the east and south sides. The route to the summit is following an old 4WD track that is not maintained and is blocked by down trees. The high point appears to be in a brush field, but I went to the my right or west and found a brush free path to the summit where there was a fire lookout at one time. Views are limited, but I could see McLoughlin and Shasta.
