In remembrance of Alfred Kwok’s passion for the outdoors, please join us in hiking Baldy and celebrating the life of this beloved professor.

We will be leaving from behind the Outdoor Education Center at Pomona (located between Dialynas hall and Sontag hall) at 8:00 am on October 9th.


This is a strenuous hike. We will split up the hike into two groups; one group will be hiking to the ski hut (approximately 2.6 miles and 2,000 feet of elevation to the hut), and another group will continue to the summit. Round trip to the summit is 11.3 miles and 3,900 feet of elevation. Please be prepared for cold and windy temperatures at the summit. Please also pack a lunch, bring plenty of water and any additional food you need.


Additionally, to ensure everyone’s safety, we will be staying as a group and making sure that everyone has a ride to and from campus.

In the spirit of Prof. Kwok, we will also be providing watermelons to share with the group. We also welcome any memories, stories, or readings!
