Ascent Trip Report

This was a hike up a groomed trail to a lake, then up a use trail to a saddle, where it just went up the flank amid some mild boulder/talus hopping. It would have been easy if I wasn't exhausted from the day before. As it was I was moving like a snail and feeling it. Then we had to try the Baker traverse...
