Comments

The East side of Baker Saddle commonly always has wet snow avalanches in summer which are triggered by climbers, When descending in the afternoon make sure you kick off the wet surface layer of snow as you descend otherwise you could be caught up in wet snow sloughs which might sweep you off and into the crevasses at the bottom.
