E, Ridge, then Baker Peak Date Climbed: Aug 29, 2009
DeltaOperator17 and I had a wonderful climb up the east ridge, doubly so because the weather was much better than predicted so we won the gamble on the long drive. Then we walked the ridge south to Baker Peak.
Did this one again a year later on the return from Big Peak. 8/29/10 Trip report
If you are headed to Baker Lake Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2007
You might as well try to climb this peak too. Four of us made it to the peak, while two of our party members hung out at the lake. A nice peak/alpine lake combo. Went up east ridge and cruised down the north ridge.
Up East Ridge, Down North Ridge Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2005
We climbed Backdrop Peak after doing a long backpacking trip in the Sawtooth Mountains. It is located above Baker Lake so you have to climb it if you go there. There was a wildfire burning in the White Cloud Mountains so the air was a little smoky.
