Overview

This Mount Baker climb is meant for experienced hikers looking to start mountaineering. Professional guide(s) will help navigate the route, home to mountain streams, blue glaciers, and vistas spanning to the Puget Sound. This amazing setting will be our classroom as we learn and practice the do’s and don’ts of alpine travel. In preparation for the trip, guide(s) will help each participant find the elusive balance between packing too much and leaving something critical behind. We will host a gear check at least three days prior to the climb to ensure everyone is prepared. After this trip you will have the skills and experience necessary to participate in intermediate climbs such as a climb of Mt. Shuksan, more challenging routes on Mt. Baker, and climbs of other peaks in the Cascades and potentially overseas.
