Started at Baldy Village at 5:15 am. Reached summit of Mt. Baldy by 9 am. Descended to Mt. Harwood, then Thunder, Telegraph, and finally Timber. No one else was at the summits of Harwood, Thunder, Telegraph, or Timber. Quiet day on the trail and the weather was perfect. Saw 6 people at the Saddle, and hiked down Icehouse Canyon to finish at 4:25 pm. Made 4 rest stops at first 4 peaks, about 15 minutes each. Hitched a ride from Icehouse parking lot to the village to save on walking down the final 1.5 miles. Just over 20 miles hiking. Only C2C is longer with more elevation gain.

If you're looking at this route, you've probably already bagged these peaks. This is just stringing some of them together. Personally I like to park at Icehouse, go down to the village then climb San Antonio via Bear Canyon, eat a burger at the notch, then mop up Three T's. If you add Cucamonga to the mix, you'll top out at over 10000ft of gain for the day.
