I approached the saddle from the backside...great access to a glacier for easy playtime on crampons/ice axe if interested. not so fun on hiking shoes! but worth the adventure. watch the rockfall from the goats! :D insane view of the north cascades to the south and all the way to Girabaldi Peak/Squamish walls to the north.
Did this on the last day of a climbing vacation to the Northwest. Was a quick jaunt up and down that provided fantastic views of Baker and the surrounding peaks! Highly recommended if in the area and time is at a premium.
