After climbing for heroes got cancel I decided to adventure and try to summit despite the bad weather. At the devils backbone I team up with couple of other guys and made out way to the summit in very bad conditions. High winds and snow and white out conditions. Although it was a hard and someway risky to be up there we had a good climb and enjoyed most of it except when having to cross the devils backbone and the cat walk. Definitely not a day for anyone to be up at baldy. Thankfully baldy was good to us and let us share our experience. 🙏🙏much respect for the mountain and its inclement weather.

      Yes, I was surprised to see how much snow came down overnight and still was when I was there

    No, only spikes and poles. But there should be more snow by now. Take them for safety if you have them
