Participant Information

The North Ridge of Baker is a steep, sustained climb on snow and ice. Technical mountaineering skills are required and good physical fitness is very important. Expect significant glacier travel, 55 degree snow, grade 3 ice, and a long day.

The rough plan is to head up to the base of the Coleman Glacier on Saturday, camp for the afternoon/evening, wake up around midnight, and climb the route on Sunday. This plan depends heavily on a good weather forecast, and may be adjusted if the weather doesn't comply.

I expect potential participants to know what gear is required on a climb like this. Make sure you answer the questions.
