June 12, 2019, Baker via Squak
WA Cascades NW (Mt Baker)
My partner John and I had the Squak to ourselves. Scott Paul was mostly snow free, with a few big patches just before the ridge. We saw some climbers descending the Easton, and a few parties on top heading down other routes. A nice breeze kept us from burning out on the climb, but it ended on the summit. This made for a pleasant rest, but sticky snow in places on the descent. The crevasse at 8+k was a bit worrisome - on the way up I thought I was across the main span, but then saw a row of little holes melted out just in front of me - I made a couple of really quick steps to get up onto firm snow.
