Info Pls! "Grasshopper Pass" AKA Baxter Col (E of Acrodecte

Postby adixon » Wed Sep 03, 2014 3:49 pm

I am in serious need of firsthand info from anybody that has actually done or attempted the north side of "Grasshopper Pass" AKA Baxter Col (E of Acrodectes Peak) in the Baxter Lakes Region.

If you don't know, any suggestions or forwards to someone who might would be gratefully appreciated. I assume that this will eventually lead to a firsthand account. Tx -alan

Secor on pg 176, 3rd Ed, lists this as "class 3 on on its northern side (loose rock!)." A recent viewing this summer would confirm that and more! It does not look like a pleasant or safe route. But you never know. Looks can sometimes be deceiving.

PM sent.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
