Solstice Climb  Sucess!

Busy day on Mt Baker thanks to good weather. Long day with sun rising early to warm us up and unleash some seracs off Colfax peaks as we were climbing up. But made it through and to the summit safely with a nice cat nap at the summit before hiking back to camp and out to the trailhead in one long day.

Video Trip Report - Chasing Baker  Sucess!

For the full video trip report check out our adventure film below:

https://youtu.be/RNQAQC1jVFA

A group of 3 of us made an attempt at the Coleman-Deming route on June 13-14 after being turned around on the same dates a year ago because of weather. This time, the conditions were incredible and we were super surprised by how high the snowline was this year. We had heard that the snowpack was 20% of the usual, but we were shocked by how much elevation we were able to gain on the dirt.

We left for the summit from basecamp at the Black Buttes at 2:30am. Hit the Roman Wall at 5:30 and summited at 6:30. Excellent temperatures, great step purchase on the roman wall and outstanding views from the summit.

Coleman/Deming  Sucess!

Camped Saturday night. Up early with lots of company. An amazing day with a bit of fumerole stink. Windy summit and BF had to relieve himself ASAP at summit with little privacy.

Coleman/Demming - First Mountaineering Trip  Sucess!

Went with Pro Guiding Service based out of North Bend WA. Due to excellent weather outlook and minimal estimated risk, we all decided to watch the sunset from the summit. We started at 2pm and arrived at the top at 8:30ish. We descended in the dark and arrived back at camp at 1:30am the next morning. The guides were great and I learned a lot (such as the Munter method for time calculation). It was a super fun trip.

Coleman headwall solo  Sucess!

I was planning to do the north ridge, but was tempted by the headwall, and glad I chose to do it. It was fun to swing tools on this consistently steep route. ~5h car-to-summit, ~8h car-to-car. Trip report.

Left at 3:30 am from the Heliotrope Ridge TH and summitted at 10:15ish. We were back the cars at 1:15. I did it in my gtx hiking boots and my friend did it in his 5.10 approach shoes. Less is more!

Coleman/Deming Route  Sucess!

Successful two-day twofer with excellent guide Kel Rossiter. Camped at the west end of the Coleman snowfield @ 6,500'. Alpine start at 2:15 - what else - and on top by 6 a.m. Bagged Colfax Peak on the return and hiked out. One of the creek crossings on the way out was, shall we say, interesting... Missed my hiking friend(s) on this one.

Via Coleman Glacier  Sucess!

Camped at the Black Buttes, and followed the Coleman Glacier up to the pumice ridge, and then up the roman wall and over to the true summit. Snow was a little soft due to the warm weather, but otherwise excellent conditions.
