15+ plus reports from last weekend and not a single one from Baker. Folks were out on the northern volcano as well. The ski from the summit down to about the 7,000 ft level was particularly sweet. Dry dirt start to the climb. We left the car around 5 am, summit around 1 pm and back at the car by 4.

Great pictures.

What was the condition of the approach to gain snow? We are planning to approach in the dark and I would like to waste minimal time messing around with the river crossing and all that. I know it may have changed but I'd like a general idea.

Thanks

You can bypass the crossing altogether if you follow the old road grade past the bathrooms to the right, after road starts to peter cut straight up through the trees to crag view, then go up to the right of big house and bee line to the crater.
