Goal: 
Diamond Peak (13,127')

We’ll start low at the end of the Oak Creek Road (6000) and hike the Baxter Pass trail from desert up into spring slush. The snow will be firmed up by the time we reach our camp at Summit Meadow (10800). We’ll ascend the southeast face of Diamond Peak (13127), which RJ Secor calls “a splendid snow climb in the spring”. Participants are skilled with ice axe for self-arrest and use of crampons on a mid-angle slope. Some members of the party will choose skis; others snowshoes.
