Baldy N, E and W Sept 2, 2023

Rod on downclimb on way up West Ridge on Baldy North
Going directly up NE ridge on Baldy West. Slabby section and rising friction traverse above my head.

Scramble of all 3 peaks of Baldy North, East and West on a sunny day in September. Have not done all 3 for a while and first time for Rod. There are new rappel bolts/chains on down climb on South side of North peak but we just worked our way down zig zagging on ledges and grooves. Not much sign of traffic.

Easy over to East peak and then steep scrappy trail down to col with west peak. Went straight up ridge on West peak and then up the slabby section. The rising friction traverse along the wall was good except for the one off balance lean out move. Easier on way down.

Went down the scree gully from the low point in the East/West col and found a good trail (better than remembered) all the way down the bowl and out to the truck.
