Participant Information

Ice Climbing on the Seracs near the lower section of the Coleman Glacier on Mt Baker WA

                                                              Ice !

We will be crossing the border into the United States so make sure your documents are valid BEFORE the trip date to avoid delays for the group.

            This is not a course:  assess your experience and skills carefully.

You must have ice climbing experience and safe belay practices.

Solo low angle glacier travel (up to WI2), short multi-pitch sections (up to WI3-4), building ice anchors, and some top rope options (WI3-4).

Gear required:

Bring your own ten essentials.


Bring tasty treats to share.

Headlamp (fresh batteries!)

Helmet, Harness and Belay Device.

Goggles or protective glasses. Sunscreen!

Tech boots and crampons, properly fitted before the trip date! 

We do Not recommend light mountaineering crampons or monos, as we will encounter poor conditions including crumbly rock, frozen slush and sun-affected glacier ice.

Technical Ice Tools

Organizer will use the Planning Forum for additional information
