You only need to do the southern portion, from the South Baldface Shelter to the summit of South Baldface (1.2 miles with 1450 feet of elevation gain) -- but you really ought to do the entire loop, just for the sake of doing it.  This hike is one of the best in the Whites, and it's relatively free of hikers since you don't summit any 4Ks.  Gorgeous, unobstructed views, with lots of ledge scrambles on the way up.

 Caution: Extremely dangerous  when wet or icy.  Also, you are  completely exposed for a very long  time...beware of storms and  fog/white-outs.

Note: The Baldfaces are on the 52 With a View list.
