Ascent Trip Report

I had route info and coordinates for Bald, but had not originally planned to attempt it. However I looked across the valley from the summit of Steptoe Butte and the snow didn't seem like it would cause a major hindrance. I was able to drive pretty close and was eventually stopped by snow around 4100'; I walked from there. I had, but did not carry or need, snowshoes. No boot prints anywhere above my car, but when I came back from my summit lounging there were paw prints in my boot prints, though I never saw anything.
