mountaineering - mt baker, wa - July 4, 2023

We will attempt Mt Baker (10,781 ft) in Washington State. Due to the washout on the road to the TH, we will do a 3-day climb. The schedule (July 4-8) includes a road trip and a 3-day climb. Add one extra day before and after the schedule if you do a two-day drive. The group will divide into teams to ascend Mt Baker by the Coleman-Deming route (grade II), or North Ridge (grade III), depending on group capabilities and interests. Only those who are capable of ascending the Coleman-Deming route as part of an independent rope team can attend (ice axe and crampon use, roped travel on a glacier mandatory). A professional instructor(s) will be on the trip for the North Ridge group. All members should have gear suitable for a multi-day glacier climb (own or rent) and plan to bring their own food (or work out sharing arrangements with other members). If interested, please contact the organizer with a description of your fitness level and your climbing resume and to receive more detailed information (e.g. cost). WMC members only.
