DescriptionThis route heads right up the north side of West Baldy. It follows a major gully from the head of Fish Fork up to the summit of West Baldy. Usually deep snow near the bottom, and some ice near the top.
Generally speaking, this is a fun climb similar to a section of Snow Creek but with a much better approach.
A good way to approach would be to hike up Ski Hut trail and climb up the Bowl. Descend to the col between Baldy and Dawson, and then head west and down into Fish Fork. Check the topo image attached to this page for a good idea on what's what.
