Great weather, great views  Sucess!

Climbing in June, we avoided many of the crevasse and serac issues that can crop up later

Mount Baker  Sucess!

Successful overnight via Coleman Deming glacier. We did have a 10-15 minute rain and wind storm come through as we were setting up tents, but that came and went quickly. The next morning we woke up to a beautiful clear night sky.

Beautiful route and climb!  Sucess!

Quite unnerving on the shiny ice of the Heliotrope Ridge in the early morning darkness of summit day. Once we had better light we went up easiy and quickly, stopping only for pictures. Simply awesome beauty up there!

Baker via Coleman Glacier  Sucess!

Climbed this with the Seattle Mountaineers to complete my Alpine Climbing Course.

Left Late, Summited Early  Sucess!

First team to the summit, but we fought a hard battle up the Roman Wall.

First glaciated peak  Sucess!

Great climb. Warm, windless, sunny morning on the summit was a treat.

Coleman-Deming  Sucess!

Warm day, alpine start would have been preferred to minimize the trudge through the slush. From the saddle to the top thinned the afternoon field. I loved having the summit to myself and the stand on the knob was worth the extra mile.

Perfection  Sucess!

Awesome weather and good company plus it was the summer solstice all made for about as perfect of a trip as one could hope for. With about 25 tents at the Black Buttes camp it was clear other people felt the same.

Late Summer on the Coleman  Sucess!

Climbed as part of an AAI alpine ice climbing course, would have headed for the North Ridge but it was badly out of condition and we opted for more time ice cragging on the Coleman Icefall and then ran up the Coleman-Deming on the last day.

Good Trip  Sucess!

Due to a weather system coming in we made a later than usual summit push and found ourselves watching the sunset while on our way down, the lights of Vancouver were stunning.

Bad Weather  Sucess!

We were caught in some nasty weather up there, but I know I had a blast.

Lots of White  Sucess!

I too was suprised how easy it was (considering its legacy). We all ran back to the car afterwards along the trail for extra exercise. I lost my brother's camera as a result >.<

I will be back for my beautiful views that I missed. I often reflect on the giant crevasses. Thanks Colin for making it possible!

First Alpine Experience

First time in the mountains, practically ever. Went with other amateurs and stopped at the Roman Wall. Disappointing as now looking back on it we could have made the summit well within our time frame.

Fun  Sucess!

It was a fun route. I was surprised at how easy it was.

Coleman-Deming  Sucess!

Spent a day working on crevasse rescue techniques then another day on the climb. Super chill, super classic line with incredible crevasse exposure for the lower 48. Blue-bird day gave us amazing pictures (see contributed images in gallery). Climbed mid-summer, right when the mountain was really beginning to open up. Some real man-eaters up there. On descent, we crossed a snow bridge that we had crossed earlier...only after summit the bridge was only about a foot wide and had a six inch and growing gap in the middle!
