Ascent Trip Report

After a quick climb up Ampersand it was early in the day so we decided to run over an see how Baker was. The climb is only 900 feet over 0.9 miles and in the summer season it is a nice easy climb. The climb feels the same in winter but the ice adds some fun and a few slides. We were on the summit within 35 minutes and then took a round about way down to avoid the ice, adding on a bit of length but allowing us to sliiiide down in the deep snow. Lot of fun!
