Trip: Mt Baring - Standard - West Ridge

Date: 2/20/2010

Trip Report:
Took advantage of the good weather last weekend to celebrate my buddies birthday with a scramble up Mt Baring.
This is the second time I have done Baring in the Winter and once again found the crux of the route to be the steep ice filled gully in the woods on the South side once you leave the ridge and head up into the basin below the gully between the North and South peaks.
Enjoy some photos!

It's a pretty easy climb overall, but I'll tell ya it is steep the whole way, reminiscent of the Neideprum trail.
I could be wrong but I think it is something like 4280' gain in 2.6 miles or so.

Nope.
But there is also, somewhere on the mountain:
a pair of sunglasses
A giga stove
and a camera case full of goodies

the mountain it seems has been paid.

Were you one of the guys from Saturday?

Nope. I soloed it in December I think it was and lost a camp ice tool on the way down. Bummer. I even went back 4 days later and found nothing.

Everything we lost was dropped and subsequently watched as it slid and tumbled out of reach.
Sorry to hear about your tool? (that just sounds wrong)
