The trek along the knife edge is fun and scrambly. There are only a few places where there is really any significant exposure. Still, one should be careful, and indeed (as all the warnings say) this would be a much trickier place to be in bad weather or slippery conditions.

After about an hour or so of scrambling along the knife-edge, we climb up a steep boulder field to the south peak. From here there is an excellent perspective looking back along the knife-edge towards Pamola peak.

Before long we are on Baxter peak itself, were a sizable crowd of hikers are enjoying the warm autumn day. We hope and indeed find out that many in the crowd are Appalachian Trail thru-hikers that are finishing their thru-hike at this very instant. (The Appalachian is the world's first long-distance hiking trail, and hiking it from start to finish in one season is regarded as an amazing feat, which of course it is! all 3360 kilometres of it).
