|Peak:||Santa Fe Baldy|
| Location:||USA-New Mexico|
| Elevation:||12622 ft / 3847 m|
Ascent Trip ReportSnow covered the entire trail, until the ridge below the summit. After about four miles, the snow was deep and loose, making for difficult trudging. Once we reached the windswept ridge, the hike was easy uphill until the last push for the summit. This last section required steep hiking through deep snow with heavy winds. The descent was quicker but grueling.
