Time to buck up and ball down

Time to write a new chapter in your fight against farmer's tan

Time to show mother nature who's boss

The most badass trip to ever leave the 5 C's is back for the 30th* year in a row. Come celebrate the glory of our 10,064 ft neighbor, Mt. Baldy, in the only appropriate way: near-naked.

Why wear a speedo to hike a mountain? 'cause then the mountain fears you, not the other way around.

Other ways to strike fear into the mountain:

       -Waxed moustachios

        -Knee socks

        -Headbands

       -Fanny packs

Dress code

Man: Speedo (or briefs, if speedo is hard to find)

Woman: Two piece bathing suit

Mt Baldy is an 8-10 mile hike (round trip) up steep trails. We will start at Manker flats, climb up the mysterious ski hut trail, chill at the summit, descend the Devil's Backbone, then return to our cars via Baldy Notch, ready for another round.

If you have a car, please bring it so more people can come
