Full description
Over three days you will take either the Easton Glacier or Coleman-Demming route with challenging route-finding through icefalls, seracs, and around large crevasses. Before summiting Mount Baker, you will learn fundamental skills necessary for safe glacier travel such as ice axe arrest, the use of crampons, and how to attach to a rope as a member of a rope team. The Mount Baker climb is meant for experienced hikers looking to start mountaineering. Professional guides will help you navigate the route, home to mountain streams, blue glaciers, and vistas spanning to the Puget Sound. This amazing setting will be your classroom as you learn and practice the dos and don’ts of alpine travel. In preparation for the trip, guides will help each participant find the elusive balance between packing too much and leaving something critical behind. A gear check will be arranged at least three days prior to the climb to ensure everyone is prepared. After this trip, you will have the skills and experience necessary to participate in intermediate climbs such as a climb of Mount Shuksan, more challenging routes on Mount Baker, and climbs of other peaks in the Cascades or potentially overseas. Skills covered during the climb include ice axe positioning and self-arrest techniques, walking techniques with and without crampons, climbing knots, glacier travel skills and rope management, navigation and route finding, hazard assessment, and cold weather camping skills.
