Weekly 'M' trail to Mt. Baldy

A low-intensity hike, at or below (my) aerobic threshold. Starting from M trailhead parking lot, up to the M via the middle or steep route, and continuing on to the Bridger Ridge with the turnaround point being the south summit of Mt. Baldy.

Completing all or a significant portion of the time and/or distance each week is the goal, but actual time & distance traveled is weather dependent. Prepare for the current conditions as necessary. Items such as trekking poles, snowshoes, boots, yaktrax, crampons and warm winter clothing may be advisable.

Max Distance: 10 miles RT

Max Elevation Gain: 4,300 FT

Max Time: 4 hours

    FYI Tyler and I are bringing boots, crampons and trekking poles. Tyler went up to the Ridge recently and said it was slick with only boots.

      I think spikes will be good. Maybe Tyler will chime in with better advice.

      I went up to that first lookout on the ridge on Thanksgiving day. I didn't have crampons, or poles for that matter (wasn't real prepared now that I think about it), but both would have been useful. I think those microspikes would be fine. The only crampons I have that fit on the boots I'm trying to break in will be definite overkill, but nice to have if necessary!

    There's a winter storm watch in effect beginning Sunday afternoon. I plan to give this a go regardless what the weather does. If conditions are terrible we'll just turnaround when it's not fun anymore ;)
