4.3 km into Baldy pass to begin ascend onto the scree slope of Midnight peak (up ~400m elevation gain). Descend quite steep through unmarked trail.

I did the loop clockwise starting with Baldy Pass. The elevation kicks in once you're done that segment. As soon as you reach the peak and see over the front side you'll know it was all worth it. Unreal views and thought it was really cool to get up and above Baldy. I'd hoped to see Barrier from the peak, but catch a glimpse on the way down. Pretty straight forward down the ridge but had to mostly freestyle once I got back into the trees. No snow mid July 2018 and was four hours round trip.

My friend and I attempted hiking to the peak today but eventually turned around due to knee/waist deep snow without snowshoes. We also didn't have this map to follow; we just took the one from Baldy Pass. Great hike and will try it again.

Really steady hike until the last third, which was nice. Beautiful views to your back as you scramble to the top too, and the final stretch is easy if you work your way low along the snow cap. Wish we picked a less windy day!

It was an excellent hike! I wished there was more snow on the ground as coming down the hills was harder.
