The return on investment with this one is amazing.
Biked within a half mile of the clearing, snow prevented biking further. Had no trouble finding the bootpath even in the snow, but was quickly bogged down by knee to waist deep snow. Was surprised to see two fixed lines on the route; they came in handy on the descent. Some of the hardest work I’ve ever done for a summit this low- but it was well worth it.
Had a fun bike ride approach followed by a nasty bushwhack and steep scramble. Found a summit register on top and had awesome views to the south & west. Would be a great spot to camp except for the approach. I approached counter-clockwise from the east side. On my descent, a Whidbey Prowler banked and flew right through the low notch just north of Bald and was so close I could see the pilot in the cockpit. That was extremely loud and very cool!
