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.
