Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2013

bechtt

Climbed over Baxter Pass (ugh!) with Michael G. up a loose chute before descending via the west ridge to Acrodectes. Slog up the pass and painful return to trail head only to get the bad news about the tragedy on North Diamond Peak. Pictures & Story

Traversed the ridge from Baxter Pass, then continued to Acrodectes. Much less chossy than it looks, but long. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2012

ChugachMan

Entire NE ridge with Doug. Started on south side of Sawmill Creek, and up the long ridge to the top. Quite grand, though a leg burner with the initial sandy slopes, and quite chossy in a few sections. Took Sawmill pass back out, and then had to hike back across the desert to the car. A real fun, long, day.

Kind of anti-climactic after the snow chute and fun scrambling on Arcodectes. Climbed w/ Scottie Mack.

Not such an intersting summit after coming over from Arcodectes. Climbed with Laura Molnar.

Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2008
A 24 hour ordeal. Did a couple 5.7ish pitches including an ice chimney. Really long, tricky route finding and plenty of choss. Many false summits also. A true adventure. Don't have more than a couple people if you try this one. Snow probably made it sketchier and more annoying than it should have been.

Bit of a slog. The mosquitos were the worst I've ever seen.

"Beware! This route up Baxter is horrible. Better to go over Baxter Pass and up the SW Slopes. You've been warned."

Better still to skip this peak completely...

The view of Clarence King from Acrodectes is pretty cool, however.

A long outing with Matthew to Baxter and Acrodectes. Beware! This route up Baxter is horrible. Better to go over Baxter Pass and up the SW Slopes. You've been warned. Trip Report

Great views. The 'loss' & 'gain' on the way back to the pass is a killer!

RSN473

recent snow made this less enjoyable than it could have been - mucho postholing (up to the crotch) until we got onto summit ridge.
