    Before my recent surgery, I'd been using an unloader brace for the last few years. It did help a lot, but I can't say I'll miss it.

    Yep.

    The Baldfaces in particular are probably the most difficult hike on the list, IMO. Steep, rugged, exposed terrain, and more elevation gain (3,600-ish ft. for the entire loop) than many 4Ks.

    They haven't closed the gate at the highway in a few years now. The road is plowed up to the second gate where there is a dedicated winter parking area. This is about 0.7 mi. before the lodge.
