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...

What a climb, great weather. Pretty crowded on the way down, I'm glad we started when we did. "I've got blistas on my [feet]!!!"

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

skydiver777

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.

This a beautiful fun mountain with easy access and good glacier travel. Good climbing with Norman on the rope. Camp on glacier or one day from car. It's always fun.

TRPMt. Baker by five  Sucess!

TRP

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!

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.
