The climbing season at Baldwin Creek could be year-round, but due to seasonal road closures it is June 1 to November 1. The middle of the summer tends to be very hot due to the southern exposure of the climbs, though early morning and late afternoon are survivable. Fall is the best season here, but that is true for 95% of all climbing areas. Precipitation presents minimal problems, though an occasional thunderstorm is possible in the late summer.
Baldwin is a fairly straightforward sport climbing area; quickdraws and a rope are all you need. Bring plenty of water for hot days and a headlamp for the hard-to-follow-in-the-dark trail. Be aware that the road requires a higher clearance vehicle and is subject to closure later than June 1 and earlier than November 1 if weather requires it.
