TRPMt. Baker by five  Sucess!


I love Baker it really has all the aspects of a big mountain on a small scale. I have climbed it many times by five different routes; The Easton, The Coleman-demming, The squak, The boulder and the North Ridge. All of them have unique qualities and varied difficulties. The mountain is changing though. The Roman headwall is gradually melting away, making it somtimes necessary to climb dirt instead of ice and snow. A couple years ago a huge chunk of ice broke off the North summit, leaving debris all across the Boulder. The climbing is still fun and the Veiws, Awsome!

kpthomsonThree different routes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2002


First time in 2002, up the Easton Glacier, Roman Headwall to the summit.
Second climb was the Colema-Demming route and lastly, the North Ridge. Our high-camp was engulfed in volcanic sulpher fumes, could hardly breath.
Weather was hot, I recall having to plunge step down the Easton.

Best view of the volcanoes I've climbed so far. It wasn't even that clear out.

Perfect weather and great company. Crevasses opening between 8000 and 9000 but you can veer to climbers left at 7200 ft to avoid unpassable crevasses but there are others opening all over.

Black Buttes to the summit in 3.5 hours or so. Pretty eerie to climb by starlight over the Coleman Glacier. Snow was awesome, and we made it from the summit to the cars in 4 hours.

Enjoyable climb. We started on friday and camped at Black Buttes. Saturday was much warmer (lots of punching through to my knees), and there were many more people. We had the upper mountain to ourselves, from the pumice ridge below the Roman Wall to the summit and back.

With the WAC basic class, one year late (took the class in 2007 and we were completely shut out by weather). Conditions were perfect and our climb was uneventful, but a bit spooky because of the fatal accident on the other side of the mountain the day before we went up.

Beautiful mountain... not so beautiful weather. Climbed to the glacier despite whiteout conditions, and couldn't make it further. Tried again the following day but same conditions. Sad footnote to the weekend on the mountain was the missing skier, Kevin LaFleur. God bless him, I know he's in a better place, and after meeting his brother and friends realize he must have been one hell of a guy. The trip was definitely a stark reminder of how dangerous mountains can be.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1977


Bivvy on Heliotrope Ridge the night before we climbed. Hoards of people on the mountain the following day, including many turkeys romping around on the glaicer in tennis shoes; oblivious to the crevasse danger. Luckily, the upper part of the mountain was uncrowded and the climbing very enjoyable. A fine summit.

Went with the Washington Alpine Club. First Cascade glacier climb for me, and the start of a fun lifetime.

We had a beautiful time up the Coleman Glacier. The walk across the summit was incredible but very cold and windy. We descended quickly to be in the lee side, even though it was in the shade. A couple of crevasse crossing were very narrow, but stable.
