Ascent Trip Report

after becky peak, daryn and i drove across the valley to baldy peak. the attached track is our drive from baldy and out to the north on US-93A (based on ron moe and summitpost directions, thanks!) the companion to this track is attached to my becky peak trip report, and between the two you should be able to fit becky and baldy into a north or southbound trip on US-93.

baldy to intersection: about 30 min one-way. (we actually drove up a bit further on baldy than necessary)
intersection to US-93A in the north: about 15 min one-way.

the whole trip, including hiking both peaks, is about 5.5h.

the benchmark at the summit is named "smoothie"... daryn and i both agree this would have been a much better (more unique) name for the peak!
