Kevin and I went to Mount Baldy. This trail was short but a lot of scramble.

Just like Ha Ling Peak, there wasn't much warm up section. From the parking lot, slope picked up immidiatly and once out of vagitation area, it was close to the peak.

Scramble scramble. I wonder why Kevin likes this mountain so much. It was rather hard day for scramble like this because wind was blowing crazy and the temperature was close to freezing temp, and yet rocks were cold. I was trying to hang on the cold rock while wind was hitting my face so hard, but I couldn't do anything because if I let my hands to protect my face, I would have fallen. ヾ(´ε`;)ゝ
