June 8-9, 2019, Baker via Squak
« on: 06/09/19, 10:46 PM »

Pretty much identical to discostew's TR a week ago except for the units. Started skinning at 4600ft, camped at ~6000ft. Leisurely start at 6:20am, glad we brought ski crampons; crevasses are still easily avoided except a big one at 8800ft. We belayed across it on the way up (didn't use ropes on the rest of the route). I can't tell how much longer it will last, we couldn't see how tick the snow bridge was, but it didn't look like it was anywhere close to collapsing, so I hope it will go for another couple weeks.

The skiing was good for 1500ft, then got grabby, probably because of the fresh snow we had this week, then got better on suncups. Still the best way to get down the mountain!

A post on the TAY Facebook group yesterday, 6/15 says the snow bridge at 8800ft is now gone.
[update] Sorry, I brainfarted, the FB post I was referring to was about CD. JimD's post from Thursday has more info on the crevasse.
