Baldy Mountain A  
Condition Updates  
Route: From Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Posted On: 2021-01-11, By: supranihilest
Info: We skinned/snowshoed up the uphill route at Aspen-Snowmass, which begins at the main village's central lift, the Village Express, and follows orange "Uphill Route" discs to the top of the Big Burn lift. To this point it was all groomed. From there we left the ski area proper and followed old tracks up to another groomed section, then up to a small radio/weather tower. We left our flotation here. There's a short, exposed Class 2+ scramble at this point, then a Rocky catwalk ridge, and finally easy slopes up Baldy. We continued to Point 13,244. To descend follow your ascent route (or if you're on skis ski down any route). Flotation useful, traction not needed, ice axe not needed (though a pole or axe is useful for the exposed snow down climb, but not strictly necessary). 
Route: North Ridge

Info: Once you leave the boundary gate at the top of the ski area, flotation not needed. Very windswept, wind loaded on the east side. Mind the cornice. Doesn't look like great skiing just yet. Same story for UN 13,244. 
Route: North Ridge
Posted On: 2014-04-10, By: TakeMeToYourSummit
Info: Easy sidecountry access to this peak from the Snowmass ski resort. Great snow & rock on the hike up. Snow is in for a summit descent. Wonderful lines found down to the lower traverse. Wet & somewhat sketchy snow on the hike out. Connected with the pipe traverse back inbounds. Pic1 - The North Ridge up to the 13,060 false summit Pic2 - Pyramid seen from the top, 13244 far right Pic3 - Some of the potential lines off the East Ridge (summit out of view, upper right) Pic4 - The pipe traverse
