Nice little article. Mt Baker was the first 'big' mountain I climbed back in the early 90s. The cabin was long gone by then, and I always wondered what happened to it. BTW, John Miles was Dean at Huxley College when I went to grad school there.

I spent a lot of time tracking down details about this Cabin to get it right. I hope some others find time to document their history with the Cabin. There must be some others around. Glad you enjoyed it. Take care.

Good history lesson Norman. I like the inside photo of all those purty girl climbers eating dinner.

Nice historic photos and research. I can testify to the fact that the cabin was still there in May of 1985 when I climbed Baker.

Sometimes it's sad to see the old club cabins vanishing. But those were different times with different expectations from the folk who wanted to access the wilderness.

There were cars with rubber tires back then too...color film, crampons and TV? Who would have guessed? Didn't they go to the moon to? Times are different, but fun to reflect once in a while.

I was on Baker twice in the same year, (I think) in 1982. The cabin was still there.
This article brought back some wonderful memories of the mountain, the Coleman Headwall and earlier in the year, a head first dive into a crevasse while leading party through the glacier and breaking through a bridge. I tested the guy I was tied to, and he passed the test! Adrenalin rush for sure...Thanks for posting, very nice.
BTW I have almost identical photo (like your first one in this article) of our tent, on the flat area beside the cabin, except, totally soaked with rain...

I hope you and others with pics of the Cabin will post them here. I am sure there are more out there!!!

Wow. Nice surprise finding your posts and pictures of Kulshan. These brought back great memories of hiking the mountain with my brother in 1981. My brother (from Puyallup) tells me the cabin was removed in the summer of 1986.

Thank for post... I wish I could get some others to post pictures of the old cabin. If you or your brother have pics, it would be great. Thanks.
