8:00 AM at Baring Store
There is potentially lots of loose rock in the approach gullies, with the possibility of some lingering steep, hard snow above that, and steep heather and moderately-exposed rock above that. Please be comfortable with the degree of exposure and pace before signing up for this marvelously-scenic but challenging scramble. Bring your rock helmet! The Baring Store is on the long straightaway below Baring Peak on Hwy 2, south side of the road, just opposite the turnoff for the Barclay Creek TH.
