||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.
