About Mt. Baldy (Old Baldy):

For a great day of climbing, or especially bouldering, this is the place! Located behind the South Seas lies this seldom-visited area strewn with boulders and Old Baldy. Old Baldy sports a handful of climbs that are typically at least 1 pitch. The bouldering here is phenomenal! The rock is crystalline granite. Most boulders are at least vertical, with many steep problems. Problems range from v0-v10?
Nearest town or city: Mt. Rushmore
Directions: From the South Seas area sign-in, walk to the right and make a quick left through a gully that leads downhill. A path is readily apparent here, and leads to the east in an obvious line through the South Seas. After about five minutes, this path intersects another trail leading north and south. Take the right pathway (south), for about ten minutes or so. On your left, another, less obvious path will form in a bunch of smaller pine trees after a cool-looking granite 'sculpture'. Walk this way and follow the path as best you can. It will lead up hill to the left, then flatten out, then uphill again. Baldy is teaming with boulders and if you get lost, there is always something to hop on. The most popular areas are to the south and to the west of the granite monstrosity that is Old Baldy itself. There is obvious potential for crack and face climbing on every area of the Old Baldy formation, and there are currently many routes-in-progress.
