Ascent Trip Report

we took "super trail" up to josephine saddle, then old baldy to the old baldy saddle. on descent we'd take old baldy the whole way... both trails are at gentle grades by peakbagger standards, old baldy is the steeper of the two. both trails are kept in excellent condition. the super trail had a handful of water sources leading up to josephine saddle, but i didn't see any beyond that (and none on the descent of old baldy below josephine). we took many breaks along the way, the stats are only for my moving time.

the summit register dated from december 2016 and was already half full. there were far more entries than there are ascents on peakbagger.
