mrchad9Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 25, 2006


Rained on us half of every day of a 6-day glacier training course. One guy bailed in the middle of the night on day one, the rest stuck it out... Wetter and colder every day. Was both fun and miserable. Summit day was great though, got above the clouds and into the sun.

Camped out for 2 nights just below 6000ft. It was really windy but the weather was amazing. I got sick and opted not to go for the summit with my group. It was still an enjoyable couple of days in the mountains though.

My local mtn when I went to WWU. Climbed it a second time a year later, but in September - amazing how many more crevasses were open.

geoseanWWU OC Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2008


My first climb on a glaciated peak! The WWU Outdoor Center fall trip went off without a hitch. We took the Coleman Route up Grouse Creek from the Heliotrope TH. Thunderstorm hit as we walked down the 2.8 snowy road miles to the cars.

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2009


It was a long day on the Easton Route due to some slow partners, but we made it up, and down just in time for a thunderstorm to hit. Went into the crater, which was cool – and sulphurous.

Great weather above clouds, except for the rising clouds made trip down a whiteout. Placed wands going up, was begged by a party coming up to leave them in place. Should have asked for $$ http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington_climbing/mount_baker/climbing_039.htm

Karl HelserEaston Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009

We did the Easton Glacier route. The weather was perfect....a little warm on summit day but we started climbing at 3:00am so the mountain shaded us till we hit the summit. The descent was warm and very soft near the end.
I like the Coleman Demming route better...more interesting...
The Easton Glacier is a long slog with a few large crevasses. The views were awesome.
We camped above "High Camp" although the camp was only 5800'. We had a small pool of water to filter and some bare ground to put the tent on. Lots of flowers on the Railroad Grade.
We started out with 9-climbers and finished with 7...two were struck with AMS...or just a lack of energy.
Instead of camping one more night after summiting, we just decided to pack up and walk out the same day. Dian and I spent the night in Sedro Woolley to get a good night sleep before the long drive home.

Camp to camp 9.5-hours...

JHH60North Ridge
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2008


Climbed the North Ridge as part of a 6 day AAI Alpine Ice class. Turned the climb part way up the ice cliff at 9600' due bad weather, communication issues, route finding problems on the leader's part, etc. I plan to go back and finish the route some time!

skydiver7771st Summit w/ Alpine Ascents  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2007


My friend Gary and I took the 6 day Mountaineering class from Alpine Ascents, with guides Rachel and Winslow. (who were outstanding). We had 6 others in the class, though two had to turn back 2 hours into the climb from lack of fitness. The rest of the group were strong climbers. We made two camps on the way up. Summit day, very foggy at high camp. It was freezing fog by 9,000 ft. We got out of the clouds about 600 ft below the summit. It warmed up very quick that day. By the time we reach high camp, 7,000ft, it was 55-60 degrees and hot in our climbing gear. We had a snow storm that night that half buried our camp.
