* Climb to the summit of the amazing Mount Baker in the Cascade Range.
* Hike through some of Washington State's most beautiful forest.
* Spend plenty of time learning several important mountaineering skills.
Located in the Cascades range in the state of Washington, Mount Baker is an amazing mountain. And the path leading up to it is nothing short of gorgeous. Beginning with a scenic drive from Seattle, we will start hiking to our base camp through the Snoqualmie national forest.
On the following day, we will focus on practicing many of the skills necessary for climbing a mountain like Mount Baker. Some of the skills we will be practicing include the following.
Ice axe positions and self-arrest techniques
Use of crampons
Cold weather camping skills
Leave no trace camping
Walking techniques with and without crampons
Glacier travel skills and rope management
And much more
After the day of practice, and an early dinner and sleep, we will wake up with darkness still abound. We will begin our ascent early in the morning, and will reach the summit of Mount Baker just as the sun has started to rise. This will ensure you enjoy a truly remarkable viewing experience from an altitude exceeding 10,000 feet!
Full of great views, a thrilling climb, and plenty of important learning and practice time, this 3 day adventure is a memorable experience. If you would like to be a part of it, just send me a request.
