LIttle Baldy Dome....SNP

As your driving up from Waksachi, park at the big pullout on the left, before the Little Baldy Saddle. At the Saddle there is a tourist trail to the top, which is an optional way to go up or down from the climbing. If your going up the trail, right before the top you will see steep talus along the wall. Follow this to the base and the climbs. If you parked at the pullout, go across the road and find the way of least resistance up to the base, which is not that far. There used to be a climbers trail here in the 80's. DANGER!! Watch and listen for falling rocks!! Some tourists just have to throw rocks and the top of Little Baldy is covered with them. When thrown, they end up right where the climbing is. One time we were taking a key figure of the Access Fund up a climb there and a huge barage of rocks came down all around us! Death size bangers, which blew in pieces around us! We dodged a few big ones and came out unscathed by a miracle! All this is rare and you can go up there during a summer weekday and nobody will be around. Little Baldy has a nice High Alpine feel and it has the best Granite in the Park.
