Description

Manker Canyon heads right up from the Ski Lift road to Harwood. If you've hiked up Devils Backbone, you'll know this canyon/gully as "that one sketchy part" where the trail thins and goes across 100ft or so of steep scree with big slide potential to the left.

This route is what the author uses when doing stuff on the north side of Baldy and Harwood, as it's a more direct way to knock out miles and elevation to get into the backcountry.

Location

Park at Manker Flat and hike up Falls Road. Hike for 1.5 miles or so to the base of the route. Check your map as always. Go straight up. You'll have a few options up there, but you'll want to generally stay left.
