Ascent Trip ReportHere is an addendum to Eric Noel's masterful trip report.
From I-90 to Noel 4900T junction is 5.2 miles. Eric went left here but suggested the possibility of going right. Don't go right. There is a sign there saying no
motor vehicles beyond this point. So, go left. From there it's another 3.5 miles to
Noel 5580 where you switchback right uphill. It's another 3.9 miles to Noel 6550T
where you go left. Then it's 0.9 miles to the unmapped road, another 3.1 to
intersection SE of UN 7128 where you stay left (or straight). I went another 1.8
miles west until I was met by a huge tree fallen across the road to the SE of the
summit of Old Baldy Mt. Luckily I was able to figure out a way to turn around.
I camped right there September 13, 2016 after turning around. Next day climbed
to summit going up NW from the camp at the tree. Took me 40 minutes. Greg Jugielski said he made it in 8 minutes. For the return I went south to near the locked gate
and walked the road back to the tree and my camper.
