Not one... not two... not three... but four people slide down a ice chute on Mt Baldy (Icehouse Saddle trail) within a week!

I love the bits about some of the people finding cell phones dropped by people who fell before them and using them to call for help. smile

Minor correction is that it appears that these occurred on the Icehouse Canyon trail which is a bit SE of Mt Baldy. Because this canyon gets significantly less sun, it's generally colder and icier than the Baldy trails which are more sun exposed. I remember coming down this trail and stepping down on some ice that was hidden in a shadow and I managed to ice skate to safety.
