8/3-8/4 Squak Gl. Mt Baker
« on: 08/08/16, 09:18 AM »

Squak is still in fairly good shape. B/C cups on glacier, headwall skiing smooth. Wednesday I hiked to about 500' below Crag view before hitting solid enough snow to allow for skinning. I set up a scenic bivy at CV then went for a nice sunset lap above the clouds on the Squak.  Thursday, a group of friends arrived and we headed off to the summit. Crevasses crossings are still mild, we never felt the need to bust out a rope. Skiing was a little bumpy but not too sticky. Pretty quiet on the mountain, never saw anybody but our group Grin
