Ascent Trip Report

We backpacked up to Baker Lake, then, after a brief rest and setting up camp, headed up to Pyramid Peak. The route from the lake was marked with large cairns, but this time of year, a few were under water. That said, the water was easy enough to avoid.

On the way back, I headed up a little ways towards Johnson Peak gaining about 150' of extra gain before thinking better of it, and heading back to the lake.
