Camp possibilities on Easton Glacier

Recommended Posts

I would like to camp a little higher than Sandy Camp on Mt. Baker's Easton Glacier route..  The topo suggests low angle terrain above 7200 ft, NE of Sandy, that might be conducive to a campsite (X on attached map). Any ideas? Thanks.

Just got back Saturday from climbing Easton route and camped at about 6000.  There were parties camped much higher and there is plenty of flat areas you could choose to bivy as you head up the glacier.

that glacier has many flatish places to camp as you go up.  just use common sense about camp location.  (covered crevasses and ice fall from above)  Haven't been up there this year but I don't remember any large hanging death blocks on route.   prolly a good idea to camp some yards away from bootpack track and probe out your camp spot looking for covered bridges.  I wouldn't trust the fact that it is level to negate the crevasse potential.
