This was my 3rd annual lead for the Oktoberfest hike of "Baldy from the Village." We had 11 people, some of whom went on to Oktoberfest afterwards. Frank led us down the "fast" route on the scree of Baldy Bowl to the ski hut, after lunch on the top at 10,064 feet.
With 6000 feet of gain in 7 miles, this is my favorite local hike. October 7th was my 19th time for that route up. The trip participants were Ron Jones, Louise Hagihara, Bill Gray, Jack Haddad, Jim Evans, Hal Rice, George Schroedter, Bill Heubach and Matt McBride.
