Not Nearly Enough Time To Really Enjoy It Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2012
With my daughter in a toddler backpack (for me to wear), and with a multi-day road maintenance crew about to start working, I had to do this in the early morning hours and finish hiking within a couple of hours roundtrip. Thankfully, I did... and was able to get out of Road 1230 in time before the maintenance crew started working. Otherwise, I was told I might end up waiting four hours or longer to get through. Great views of Mount Baker, especially most of my summit route from June.
Right below the summit block, I took a left at the fork. It's a direct route up the ridge. Class 2 and shorter than going to the right. Looks really steep from below, but once you head up it's not as bad.
