And here’s the fun part, a 1900′ climb in 1.3 miles to the summit of Baldy at about mile 22 ish, instead of the tame singletrack up the Bookends. We’ll reach the Tunnel aid station after traversing the Baldy Ridge heading back towards Hidden Peak. Why would Ido such a thing? Because it wasn’t hard [...]
