  1. Hey guys. I'm flying in next weekend with a group of buddies to take a whack at the CD on Mt. Baker. Anyone know what the latest conditions are? I assume the route is still open, just heavily crevassed? What's the situation with the bergschrund at 8800? How bad is the ice is higher up and should we expect to need ice screws to belay up past the Roman wall? Also, is there any water on the glacier above Hogsback camp? Would love any beta I can get. Thanks!
  2. Coleman Seracs

    Has anyone been up to the Seracs at the Coleman Glacier recently? Was wondering what its looking like and when a good time to possibly get a couple swings in on the good o'l ice tool.
  3. Mt Baker private climb

    Hi folks: I just joined this group. I am a 74 year old reasonably fit newbie to glacier travel. I have reached 16,000 feet in the Himilaya on a trek so I’m not concerned about altitude sickness. I will be taking IMG’s Mountaineering Day Course and Advanced Mountaineering Day Course in July followed by a guided private climb of Mt Baker. I have all of the required gear in their gear list. I have been training since March with a pack, and can now comfortably handle 2 miles with a 40 pound pack. HOWEVER, living in Minnesota there is simply no way to train for the ascent from the road to base camp on the Coleman-Deming route. And, of course, no way to train for the glacier climb to the summit. I would really appreciate any advice/comments about this upcoming adventure. I specifically chose a private, guided climb because of the flexibility to travel at a reduced pace compared to a group climb, and even stopping without summiting if I simply can’t handle it (although I’m committed to getting as far as I possibly can). Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi, I'm looking for a partner for skiing/splitboarding the Coleman-Deming or Boulder Glacier route on Baker sometime this spring. I splitboarded the Emmons a few years ago, did the DC route (not skiing) twice, and do glacier surveys for work with USGS at South Cascade Glacier. AIARE1 and trained in crevasse rescue from the NPS Rainier Climbing Rangers. I know the outlook is bleak with covid, but I'm hoping the trailheads start opening up in May.
  5. I just finished AAI's Alpinism 1 & 2 and I have about a week left in Washington before I need to leave. I would love to get back into the hills and gain more experience while I'm here. I'm mostly interested in moderate glacier climbs like the Easton on Baker, Sulphide on Shuksan, Eldorado, Sahale, Glacier Peak, etc. Please reach out if you're interested!
  6. Dear All, How partnering for Mt Rainier during July 18/9 - July 23 ? Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Olympus, Baker .... - or any more interesting peak between near Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. I'm from Europe, nowadays based in Oxford UK, visiting OHSU in Portland for business on July 17/18. Unfortunately I don't know any mountaineers in Pacific North West, so keen to team up ! I am comfortable to lead such climbs technically, with a reliable partner, but unfortunately won't have much time to do research for routes/maps. I'm experienced in both alpine and ski mountaineering, having done 40+ high altitude peaks of comparable/higher technical difficulty than Rainier between 14,000 and 24,000 feet, and practice crevasse and avalanche rescue almost every year. Member of Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ). Good endurance - I have done up to 20 hour mountain routes and up to 16,000 uphill feet in one long day. Not as fit at the moment, but 7,000 feet uphill/day is still fine. Thanks, Vaclav
  7. Dear All, We are visiting OHSU in Portland for work, on July 18. Would love to stay to do some mountaineering between Portland and Vancouver till July 23. I'm an experienced mountaineer, but have never been to Pacific North West. Looking for a reliable partner - Mount Rainier would be an obvious target, but happy to join any other trip - Hood, Olympus, Adams, Jefferson, Baker... between Portland and Vancouver. . See below some basic info about me. Just PM me if you are in the area on those days, and open to potentially team up ! Thanks Vaclav About me: - Entrepreneur/CEO of a medtech company based in Oxford UK,. - Member Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ), Oxford University Mountaineering Club, Austrian Alpine Club. - Have climbed 40+ peaks of comparable or higher difficulty to Rainier at 4000m-7000m elevation.Experience gained mostly in the Alps, Andes, Caucasus, Pamir, Altay. - Physically demanding but not very technical climb on French PD or AD would be ideal for this trip. I have done routes up to French D, but would not be as ambitious with unknown people - Highly safety conscious. Every couple of years i repeat glacier rescue training, and have real-world experience in rescue situations involving other climbers/skiers. - At the moment, i do not plan to bring skis given reported poor snow conditions, but could.
