Great climb despite the near white-out no-view. Many thanks to my partner, esugi.

My third trip up Baker via Coleman-Deming. Climbed with Courtney (cp0915), his first time on a volcanoe. Thunderstorms and rain at night, woke up to a so-so weather and summit was obscured by clouds. Wind picked up along Pumice Ridge and gusting to 50 mph on summit. Near whiteout and very cold from 9500 feet up. No summit view.

We did this climb with our friends from the Mazamas. Crappy weather on the approach foreced us to bivy low (~5400') next to the Railroad Grade. 1am start the next morning under clear and calm conditions. Got to summit at 7am. Crowded. Quick photo and a quick upchuck (felt bad for some reason) and we hiked down/out. Headed down to L-worth for some approach-free cragging.

Second summit of Baker. We left at 2:40 am and reached true summit at 6:20 am. We took a couple of long breaks. Beautiful summer day with no wind at all.



We were a two man team but never felt uncomfortable on the glacier. The route stays in the shade till late morning (10 am in our case) so the snow stayed firm through the entire descent back to camp.

Super Sweet ChopsRoute Climbed: Coleman/Deming Date Climbed: October 25 2003  Sucess!
We couldn't have climbed any later in the year. Super hard ice. The icefall section above Hogback was a total nightmare. Super strong winds but actually a beautiful day. Routefinding a bit of a problem but the beautiful thing, my partner and I on the mountain alone for two days without seeing anyone!

Took AAI six day course. Rain & sleet the entire week & a total white-out at the summit, but loved it!

A truly awesome climb. We slept at the foot of the glacier and left at 430am in poor weather. Almost bagged it, but decided to see what happens a bit further up. At 9k ft, we broke through cloud deck into glorious weather. The incredibly aethetic view of Baker's heavy glaciation and nearby peaks poking through the cloud deck was incredible.

Memorial weekends always helpful by adding up some necessary vocation time in our bussy life style. It was early in the season, thus most of the roads leading towrds the trailhead were completely covered with snow. Once we found a spot where to leave our car we started to go up the trail. The weather was buitiful in the morning but was rotten by the heavy rain later in the day. After a nasty day of hike we did not hope to see a clear sky, but fortunatly the next day became very promising. The summit condiitons were perfect and we summited via the Normal route with some littel variations(45 deg ice climb) to make the summit day more remarkable. It took us nine our total from the base came and back.

Went up with the promise of a dusting of new snow, bought my snowboard and rode down the majority of the Coleman-Deming route. We found shallow powder/corn down to 8000 feet. Perfect weather for the third time in a row.

Once again, perfect conditions and amazing weather. The route was very busy on the weekend. We camped at the high camp up at 7000 feet, which in hindsight is not a very good idea. The glacier begins at 6000 feet, and the first section is steep and heavily crevassed. A fall with a full backpack on this section would not be pretty. It's a short climb anyway, so the low camp on the rocks at 6000 feet is perfectly suitable.

20 Hours RT, too many running belays above ice cliff due to fresh snow and balling up of crampons.



Good ski down on corn.

Climbed the Easton Glacier group as part of an Alpine Mountaineering course. Great alpine start with clear skies, a full moon and views down to Ranier and Seattle and over the Puget Sound. Good snowbridges in late May made the glacier relatively easy. Beautiful panorama from the summit.
