Ascent Trip Report

Up South Baldy Trail to FR 235, then down to Timber Peak Trail. An unofficial trail branches off to the left just before the summit. Some light class 2 scrambling near the top. Back down to FR 235 to check out Baldy Spring - no water except for a trickle flowing into a tank that must have been used by whoever lived at the log cabin there. Back down South Baldy Trail, where I saw two other parties on their way up. Very warm day for late October.
