Dawson Peak Professional Review and Guide
"The Devil’s Backbone is the colloquial moniker of the trail up the knifelike ridgeline to Mount San Antonio. The “other Devils Backbone” follows a mountaineer use trail on the backside of Mount Baldy and traverses the second-and third-highest peaks in the Angeles National Forest. The way is steep, no-nonsense, not overused, and not for the timid or the acrophobic. Breathtaking views are the norm and scrambling over loose rock is guaranteed, as well as high-mountain adventure."
