Description

Mt. Ne'er-do-well is a recent "climbers' name" bestowed upon the previously unnamed Peak 9211', the highest summit on the serrated ridge crest just north of Baron Spire. This peak was mistakenly labeled as Baron Spire on the overview topo in Lopez's guide. Ne'er-do-well is a rather blocky and unassuming peak, with only a couple of facets that offer appealing climbing prospects. The elegant buttress of Baron Falls Tower, home to two recorded grade IV free climbs, lies on the peak's western flank. Ne'er-do-well's east face is a relatively clean 800' sweep of dark granite with one recorded route to date. While no other aesthetic technical possibilities exist, all aspects of Ne'er-do-well appear somewhat technical, precluding a casual ascent. This fact, coupled with the lack of literature concerning prior ascents and the absence of evidence of previous visitors on the summit, led us to believe that we may have been the first up it. Does anyone else out there have any more information about this peak's history?

Getting There

Ne'er-do-well lies just north of Baron Spire and is approached in the same manner via the trail from Redfish Lake to Alpine Lakes and over the pass to the three Baron Lakes. I believe the approach is approximately 7 miles. Camp at the secluded Little Baron Lake, which only offers one really nice site on the west shore. If it's occupied (unlikely), consider the Big Baron Lake, which offers several sites and reportedly good fishing. Little Baron Lake is the starting point for the approach to either the east face or Baron Falls Tower.
