      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mt Baker, Roosevelt Glacier

Recommended Posts

Has anybody climbed the Roosevelt Glacier on Mount Baker? A friend posted a photo of it recently and it looks really cool, kind of like the Adams Glacier. I have not been able to find any trip reports for it. Looking at a map it appears that you could approach it as per NR, but just keep going clockwise past the ridge.

I have no info, though it sounds like a cool option. "Off the beaten path" is well worth pursing these days.  Surely John Scurlock has a stunning aerial photo of that side?

I gave away my Beckey guides so I have no references for it. RoboBoy posted stunning photos of it on his Facebook page and it looks huge and steep and really cool. Unfortunately the crevasse situation on the north side is becoming sketchy so it will have to wait until next year, but I'm definitely going to take a look.

Great photo, thanks! Looks like you can stay climber's right to avoid exposure to that serac band perhaps.

Seems like a lot of icefall hazard

You're talking to someone who thought it was a good idea to climb the Price Gl.  :wink:

@DPS is old school.
