If you roll early on Sat it doesn't look too bad, be on the way back down from Baldy by 1100 or earlier. Sunday is hotter with NE winds.

I was considering running up there Sunday. The temps aren't the show stopper. Temperature decreases rather rapidly with altitude and about all of GRR is on the reverse north slope and in the shade almost all day. Predicted high for Sunday at 3500 ft is in the mid 80's

Predicted wind though is 15-25 mph with gusts to 40mph.

A 40mph crosswind gust at the wrong spot could ruin your whole day real quick.

Think i'll do something else unless the forecast changes dramatically tomorrow.

Agreed, I was up there in Santa Ana winds in April. Coming around some of the turns the face of the slope created all sorts of crazy wind currents. Didn't knock me down but definitely got my attention!

I decided to bikepack partially up the Mt Wilson Toll road today and camp over night at Henninger Flats.
I'll start my ride late afternoon before sunset when temps are much more bearable and with plenty of shade. I usually do this on average twice each month, year round.
