Ascent Trip ReportIt was a nice hike up the TRT to the West Ridge of Baldy, but once I got there finding the high point is a bit confusing. I was using Google Maps so I tried to find the highest point that was still in California. I wandered around awhile and didn't find any register. I went on up the the summit of Mt. Baldy and on to Rose Knob. At first I went up the rocky point (Peak 9499) after Rifle Peak and then realized that wasn't Rose Knob, so followed the saddle over to that and then returned to the West Ridge via the TRT. At that point I went to the highest of the rocky points and found the register for the West Ridge, but Google Maps shows that is in Nevada. Is there a authoritative source for where the state line is? Anyway I think I hit all the possibilities there.
2:21 up, 10 min. searching around, 22 min. to Mt. Baldy, 22 min. on top for lunch, 41 min. to Rose Knob, 2:50 back down (including more time at West Ridge. Total time 6:37, 11.2 miles from West Baldy to Mt. Baldy - Rose Knob - TRT Trail Head.
