Ascent Trip Report

The neighboring Wheeler Peak was so easy that after seeing Bald Mountain the first half of the way down from there, I decided to branch off at the saddle and summit it as well. Maybe it was being tired from already summiting Wheeler Peak, but the apparently endless talus with nothing else to look at made climbing this a challenge.
