Beautiful weather; calm, clear, and warm. One of our rope members took a summit poo, while a friendly Canadian let me have a go flying his kite on the summit.

Excellent weather caused us to set up a low camp at 5900' along the railroad grade, and ascend the Easton in warm sunshine. We left camp at 1:30pm and returned at 11:00pm. Even on such a nice day, we needed crampons from the crater on, and the summit was windy and cold.

Climbed with Brian F and Mark S. Lucky hole in the wheather. Northern lights were brilliant as we weaved through the crevasses. A fantastic climb and alone on the summit.

Climbed above and inside the glacier as part of a mountaineering course through my college. The mountain was beautiful, weather perfect, and route challenging, but not too difficult.

Baker is a cool mountain...Lots of eye candy. Ice blue glaciers, blocky debris fields, deep-ass crevasses, water falls falling over exposed rock bands...
The four of us camped at the lower (6000') camp. Excellent snow free camp rings and tasty running glacier water. Made for a long summit day though. Lower camp to summit to lower camp in 9.5 hours. Wind and fog at the summit (No views). A couple of threats of precip (rain) but nothing bad enough to chase us down.

Clear skies, but incredibly windy at the top. It was about 25 degrees with 50 mph wind gusts. We spent about 45 minutes on the summit, had a few snacks, ate a watermelon and then headed down.

Nice hike up the Railroad Grade in good weather. Summit day started out nice, then we watched a storm system come in during our descent. Moved camp from up on the glacier down to the main high camp area. Enjoyed the sound of rain pounding on the tents while sippin a bit of whiskey. Always spend an extra day out if you can!

Great weather. Snow was firm enough up high. The Roman Wall was essentially like walking up a staircase from multiple parties bootprints from the day before. Incredible views.

No dice on Father's Day weekend. Whiteout conditions kept us cozy in our tent rather than attempt the summit. Gotta go back!

Headed up on a clear day. Went from a beautiful day to full whiteout and weather by the next morning. Was lucky enough to get views for the first few hours. I imagine if needed you could follow the SkiDoo tracks up most of the way...just follow the beer cans

The weather that week was perfect. Blue skies with white puffy clouds and very little wind. Baker is awesome, I can't wait to go back.

This has got to be one of the coolest peaks I've done. Got lucky with a weather window on day 3. Punched through one snowbridge on the Coleman, snow conditions were excellent on the way up and slushy on the way down.

Only 50' visibility at times, broke from clouds at 7000' into beautiful clear day. Bitter cold fierce wind blowing on top, stayed on top for about 2 minutes! Temperature varied from 20 degrees on top to over 70 at around 7000'! Punched through a hidden crevasse on the descent. Lots of snowmobiles on the first day, none on the second.

Fun day out with friends. Nervous moment when Euro-skier was ascending the steeper portion on skins, decided to use our rope as a temporary handline. Enjoyed route more than Easton Glacier which I did two years prior.

Dude!!! is the only word that can describe the climb. I managed to find the 6 most perfect days to play on Mt Baker. There was no wind, rain or sleet just clear blue skies and awesome views. Went up the Coleman Deming route and on summit day had hard snow that was perfect for crampons. The crevasses were still pretty much still closed and getting purchase on the Roman Wall was not a problem. Like I said earlier Dude!!! is the only way to describe the climb.

Incredible experience!! I looked at that mountain from Bellingham for way too long not to have finally climbed it. One of the very few summits that moved me to tears to be atop it.

A blizzard and subsequent whiteout turned us around at 8500 feet. You can read about Jon falling into the crevasse in the Trip Report. I'll try again in a month.
