Annual WPSMB Baldy Climb

That's right, Friday was the annual Whitney Portal Store Message Board (exhale, inhale) winter climb of Mt. Baldy.  Although turnout was decidedly, um, meager, five of us had a great time battling the winds and chilly temperatures.  And we could even see Mt. Whitney from the summit!

I'll leave it at that and show some pictures:

 Patrick is bundled up, so it's cold!

 San Gorgonio (L) and San Jacinto (R) from Baldy summit.

 Clowns on top.

 Jeff fighting the wind for the summit prize with Ontario Peak in the background.

A bare bowl kept us on the Ski Hut Trail.  It also made for light packs.
