chris called me on Thursday and asked if I wanted to go to Mt Baldy that Saturday. So I went with him and Christopher and honestly, it was pretty super awesome. Elevation gain is the same 3900' (or whatever) as it always is from Manker Flats, but I have no idea of the distance when you just go up the bowl. "Didn't bring my GPS, did I?"
The glissade down was fast and crazy, the walk down from the ski hut was mostly just wet. Rock on.
