Mt. Baldwin splits the two exit glaciers spilling out of the Hole in the Wall Glacier. Each aspect provides a different type of objective. It looks chossy.

Getting There

Mt. Baldwin can be accessed a few miles West from the Skolai Airstrip via Wrangell Mountain Air from McCarthy. The SW side has high scree to a rock headwall. The Eastern side is mostly crossed headwall. The NE side has a glacier nearly to the summit. 


SW Route

Gaining the SW scree and finding a route up the last 500 ft to summit is probably the best way to get high up. However, accessing the SW requires hiking 3-4 miles of the East tongue of Hole in the Wall. A tedious rock glacier hike. Alternatively a rock/ice climb up the West tongue of the hole in the wall. All rock looks of low quality but no rock fall was observed on Mount Baldwin despite the heavy rock fall off other glaciated walls.


NE Route

Alternatively you the glacier approach could work but you will likely result in some headwall to the summit.


No recorded ascents found online.
