Ascent Trip Report

After spending the night at Baker Lake, we headed up first the highpoint of Baker Peak, then (most of us) headed over to the west summit (a relatively easy trip with GREAT views) before heading down. The main channel down was a little less steep than our ascent route, but only marginally easier- still the side of a huge pile of loose rocks. From Baker Lake, we took the trail down to the trailhead.
