The summit is closed for construction of a new observation tower. The viewing deck and lower trails are still open. I am not sure when the summit will reopen.

Latest submitted climbing notes
Hiked Heaton Flats trail 2/17/18. Nice morning shade and cover. A few steeper sections on the "bumps" but overall a well-maintained trail, and most of the yucca were clipped too. We got through with no scrapes or scratches.
Were planning to summit Iron, but on descending to Heaton Saddle, a hiker came up saying he was 1/4 mi up the steep peak trail when he saw a mountain lion tracking him and saw fresh kitty scat on the trail. This was about 10:30/11 am on a Saturday, and there were 2 people just ahead of us who had turned back - the guy who saw it and another solo guy with his dog; both were xp with mountain.
We decided to also turn back for safety. So a mountain lion does have Iron as part of its roaming territory. Be aware, be safe, and have fun hiking Big Iron!
Did Baldy via Ski Hut up/Backbone down Sun Feb 11, 2018. Almost all of trails were dry; just literally a couple ice patches in shady sections of Ski Hut that were easy to avoid. The snow/ice from past weeks seemed to have mostly melted, and even West Baldy looked clear and dry.
Not sure if new weather system will drop anything, but trails were good though scree did seem extra loose, perhaps from earlier snow melt. I was glad I had my poles.
Do respect Baldy in winter, though. It was windy and cold on Sun, always carry at least spikes just in case, strongly consider poles, and be safe in the high exposure areas.
Live weather observations from meteo stations
For each mountain we keep a list of nearby meteo stations reporting current weather observations many times per day. Gather all available weather information before heading out to the mountains for climbing, walking, mountaineering or any other outdoor pursuit.
