|Date:||Saturday, December 30, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||9453 ft / 2881 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI started up the Old Baldy trail at 12:40pm and reached Josephine Saddle at 1:30pm. I continued up the Old Baldy Trail, which had significant snow and ice cover in the north-facing shadow of the mountain, making me wish for a pair of crampons. The summit trail from the Baldy Saddle was also iced over in spots. I summited at 2:51pm with upwards of fifty ravens swooping over the peak. I decided not to take my chances with the ice on the Old Baldy Trail, so I descended the Supertrail from the Baldy Saddle, reaching Josephine Saddle at 4:28pm; I continued down the Old Baldy Trail and finished at 5:13pm.
Stats: 2h11m up, 17m at summit, 2h5m down, 12 miles.
