Scrambling Routes
Easy scrambles via the west slopes. Neither of these objectives poses any difficulty, and each is readily ascended by west-facing scree slopes. With a camp at Baker Lake, both can be done in one day and you'll be back in time for dinner. Each of these summits is a good argument for use of ski poles because of the looseness of the terrain. Try from July on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 256
