Ascent Trip ReportClimbed Baldy after summiting on Harwood with Jim and Shellie. Large thunderheads overhead. Started to sprinkle as we ascended Baldy. Arived on top around 12:00 noon. Shortley after ariving it hailed pea sized hail chasing us down towards baldy bowl to avoid a possible lightening strike. John was on the opposite side of Baldy baging a terra Cache and we were to meet him on top of Baldy. Also Mark who is always slow had not arived on the summmit yet. After the hail stopped and it cleared some we climbed back to the summit to meet John and Mark. John arived shortly after we arived, but still no Mark. It was looking threatening and we needed to get off the summit soon but where is Mark. Shortly he reached us on the radio to say he was almost at the summmit. When he arive we headed down via the Baldy bowl as it had started to thunder but no close lightening strikes. As we neared the point where you dropped off the ridge around the bowl it started to rain and we were getting lightening strikes that were to close for comfort. It was a relief to start descending into the safety of the bowl.
