Ascent Trip Report

Decided that for this trip up to Mount Baldy, we would take the route-less-traveled. We took Register Ridge up to Devil's Backbone. That is one STEEP trail. Looking at my AllTrails splits, the 1st mile is 1700ft elevation gain, followed by the 2nd mile of 1200ft gain. That only gets you up to Devil's Backbone under Mount Harwood. After a food and rest recharge, we continued on up 0.3 miles to the summit of Mount Harwood for Peak #1 of the day. From the Harwood summit we continued another 0.4 miles to reconnect with backbone. From there we did the final 0.5 mile 700ft push to the Baldy summit for Peak #2. We took Ski Hut back down for an 8.25 mile/4100ft gain day. Little patches of snow here and there, but nothing that presented a problem.
