May 2000 - Baldy main summit
June 25/05 - Baldy Traverse and egress via W pk S ridge

Baldy from Heart Mtn. The route follows the right hand ridge.

June/05 - solo; did traverse and descended off of W Baldy via its S ridge.  Initially moderate scrambling with exposure on crest (avoidable down on right), once ridge cliffs dissapated I headed left for scree.  When that ran out, walked a few metres to the right to open scree down to the Baldy Pass Trail, out to the road and strolled along the road back to my vehicle.
