Participant Information

A group size of 12 participants is the maximum allowed as per Mt Baker Wilderness regulations. Rope teams of 3-4 preferred.

Screening will be used to make sure you are prepared for such a trip.

This trip will be cancelled if the forecast is poor.

We will be meeting Friday evening or early on Saturday morning and travelling to a high base camp. Summit attempt in the wee hours on Sunday morning. Retreat to Base camp. Pack up and return by Sunday evening.

You must have recent experience in:
- Roped glacier travel
- Crevasse rescue
- Snow camping

Gear required:
- Crampons and ice axe
- Rope (1 per 3 people)
- Harness, helmet
- Crevasse rescue equipment
- Overnight camping gear and tent
- Headlamp/torch
- 10 essentials, other gear

Insurance:
STRONGLY CONSIDER trip insurance for the trip. Do you want to get bankrupt because you slipped and hurt your ankle?

Border:
You MUST have a valid passport or other travel document enabling you to cross the US border. Arrange your ESTA visa in advance to save time at the border if you need one.
Do NOT use the nexus lane unless everyone has a nexus card. Don't take fruit/vegetables across the border, it's not worth the hassle/risk - you can buy vegetables in the US easily, and no doubt you will enjoy the additional selection of food not available in Canada anyway.

Emergency Info: 
Make sure your Emergency contact is up to date. You will need this to attend the trip.
