Itinerary

Day 1: Orientation and Drive to Mt. Baker trail head

The day starts with an equip­ment ori­en­ta­tion. Once depart­ing Seat­tle the group will head to one of the Mount Bak­er trail­heads, Schreiber Mead­ows for the Eas­t­on glac­i­er or Heliotrope for the Cole­man Dem­ming glac­i­ers.  

 

This hike is very stren­u­ous and can take from 4 — 6 hours to your base camp.  

After estab­lish­ing camp, the remain­der of the day will focus on the skills nec­es­sary for the prop­er use of an ice axe, trav­el­ing in bal­ance, self-belay, and self-arrest.  

You will then focus on the skills required for safe and effi­cient glac­i­er trav­el includ­ing roped trav­el and self-res­cue (prus­sik­ing) tech­niques followed by a short glacial​ “tour,” enabling you to prac­tice and com­pre­hend the day’s lessons.  

Dis­cus­sions late in the day will focus on nav­i­ga­tion with the use of GPS devices, phone nav­i­ga­tion appli­ca­tions and map and compass.
