Height: 7,904ft
View-o-meter: 2/5
Scrambling Difficulty: Easy
Total Trip Difficulty: Moderate for peak only (difficult for Anderson-Lost-Bauerman ridge run)
Best Feature: Tamaracks & Twin Lakes
Worst Part: Long approach hike if doing the peak alone - sore feet if you're at the tail end of the ridge run

Bauerman is a relatively straight forward peak to ascend, this, despite a long approach. The easiest approach is to hike up the Snow Shoe cabin trail from Red Rock Canyon. Continue past upper Twin Lakes. At the end of the switchbacks, head east through a thin section of Tamaracks. It is a straightforward hike to the peak.

If you are doing this peak as part of the beautiful Anderson-Lost-Bauerman ridge run, things are equally as easy. There is no scrambling along the east ridge preceding the peak. It is the ground along the intermediate peaks that is challenging - definitely not an easy scramble along this path.

The East face has some stellar looking couloirs that ambitious mountaineers may one day tackle.
