"Started out early and expected other hikers on the day, but there were no other hikers climbing the mountain on this Saturday. There were several cars parked at Cow Canyon Saddle, but apparently they went up Sunset Peak. I didn't mind the solo day at all, especially since the trail goes through sections of overgrown vegetation and/or missing trail that slid down the slope. The last thing I needed to do was also dodge other hikers coming in the other direction.

Continued cross-country up the ridge to the summit. After enjoying the shadeless summit, continued cross-country up the ridge to intersect the Bear Canyon Trail at ~8,400 ft, then up to Mount Baldy. Spent the night on the summit and enjoyed a cool, breezy night and a full moon. 6,000 ft of elevation gain, mostly cross-country, over l" - klotito, Aug 29, 2015
