Ascent Trip Report

Incredible views all around, especially of Mount Baldy. Started at Icehouse, took the short detour to Bighorn Peak, then hiked up to Ontario Peak. Pretty quiet day on the trails (Monday), the only person I saw past Icehouse Saddle on the Ontario Peak Trail section was at Kelly Camp. Had both Bighorn and Ontario Peaks to myself.
