It was a very cold and windy day. However, the views of Baker and other surrounding mountains are excellent. The logging roads are not what they used to be since they were closed. Lots of washouts and dense overgrown roads. The original route is a full blown bushwhack in the upper spots. I will likely update the route topo image to help any future climbers. Also, the south and southwest faces of the mountain below summit were covered in one big wind slab when we went. I suggest approaching the final bit from the east or northeast side. Of course it all depends on wind direction.
Lots of Snow, good workout!
Weather above the inversion layer was perfect. The clouds and fog were on the 3500 level. Once above the inversion level the views were amazing.
