Climbing Baker is always interesting and fun. The North Ridge is highly recommended.

Summited late due to altitude sickness of some tripmates and had to return in slushy conditions. Fell halfway in a crevasse that gave way as I jumped across. Absolutely amazing clear weather. Great fun!

Great conditions most of the way up -- bit icy up at the very top in the transition to the top of the mountain.

My first Cascade volcano. Left camp at the top of the Railroad Grade with my son and a friend at 4am and summited about 10.30. Watched Rainer disappear in a rapidly advancing storm and got the heck out of there. Good baptism.

ilukaRoute Climbed: Coleman Glacier On Ski Date Climbed: February 26, 2005  Sucess!


We took advantage of the low snow this past winter and the good trailhead access and skied the route in one day. Able to drive to within 2 miles and 1,000 feet of the trailhead making it an 8,000 foot day! Skied up to the col then booted it up to the top as the summit ridge was a bit firm and icy. Topped it off by skiing down and leaving my ice ax back up at the col... doh!

Perfect alternative to overcrowded Easton.

In the middle.

Our original plan was to go through Squak Glacier: as I remember from my previous climb, approach and climb is short and fast (in 1998 I climbed in 6 hours from parking lot to the top). Not this year. Glacier Squak with it's original route is impossible (everything is possible) to climb because of huge lines of crevices. On the other hand we have the Easton Glacier with it's crowds waking you up 12 am and is no way that you can go to sleep again because of every fifteen minutes next group of "mountain madness" is preparing for finale assault. So I decide lead my group in the middle, just exact between Easton and Squak. Although approach to the glacier and first couple of thousand feet is independent ,you can easily and quickly reach this place traversing left, Squak Glacier. So when you use Squak approach you need to traverse left using Colfax Peak as a direction.

Cheers Kris

1 am BC, 8 AM summit.

Easy to follow the footprints in the glacier except at the begining where the glacier is dry. This is also the most dangerous part of the route with the weakiest snow bridges.

Snow very soft getting down, so it would have been better to reach the summit earlier, 6 AM I guess.

Anyway was awesome the sunrise and the views from the summit were breaktaking.

It was amazing to have my wife as a partner as well

Left at 1:00 AM from climbers camp. Reached summit by 7:00 AM. Snow was OK until around 9:00 AM then it got really soft. The crevases at the base were easy to navigate; just aim up the mountain.

Partner tuckered out at 9,600ft so we had to descend, so very very sad. Perfect day. Route was in good shape.

I Love Snow ConesRoute Climbed: Coleman Date Climbed: August 7, 2005  Sucess!
Awesome hike. Really warm. Went to do the North Ridge from high camp but the crevasses were not passable. In case anyone was wondering, we were the retards who camped right below the Icefall at 8200 feet. A ranger, who apparently was a brain surgeon before, told us (with a sweet mountain man lisp) the folly of camping there. Thanks Ranger Rick!! We ended up summating to a windy but mild morning. The crevasses were huge!! If you see any really well used snow cones thank my buddy.

Holy crowds! Fun route. Accidentally (well kind of) decended down the Easton glacier and hitched a ride back into town.

Awesome climb on beautiful facile route.

Crater below Sherman peak was venting Hydrogen Sulphide and steaming.

Summit was cloudless, but very windy and cold. But what a view from this cascade monster.

Great trip!

My first real climb through glaciated territory and loved every minute of it. It was an intense experience in true focus and taught me many skills I use frequently to this day.

Set up high camp below Sherman Peak on the Squak glacier. Woke up at midnight and started up the Squak, but had route finding problems with all the crevasses so we traversed over to the Easton and made the summit with spectacular views. On the descent, clouds rolled in making it hard to see where to go. Thank goodness for wands! Fun climb.

Climbed with agorokhov and ClimbingSnow. Started at 3:00pm from Shreiber's Meadow trailhead (3364') and go to our camp (6400') by 7:00pm on partial white-out conditions. Not sure if it was going to clear, we prepared anyway and hoped for the best. Then, by 10:30pm, it cleared (a sea of stars on the night's sky above). Woke up and walked out of camp at 3:30am. By 4:45am, we didn't need our headlamps. Reached the summit at 9:30am (6 hrs from camp); we're slow. Mostly sunny & clear , but windy at the summit. Excellent views all around. Could see Glacier Peak, Rainier, Shuksan and several other North Cascade peaks. Three hours later we're back to camp. Rested for an hour and then we hiked out. We stopped to eat dinner at Tacos Guaymas in Burlington (I highly recommend the Beef Steak 'Wet' Burrito).
