MT. BAKER

Second most glaciated mountain in the Lower 48.

We offer guided ascents of Mt. Baker (10781') via the standard Coleman-Deming route, the Easton Glacier, and the more technical North Ridge, May–September.

COLEMAN-DEMING

Offers a generally straightforward glacier climbing experience that makes for a great introductory route.

EASTON GLACIER

Similar in its moderate nature to the Coleman-Deming, but on the south side of the mountain.

NORTH RIDGE

A great route for climbers with more experience; considered one of the best snow and ice routes in North America.

 Climbing the North Ridge of Mt. Baker.
