      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!

[TR] Baker Backcountry- 11/18/2006

Recommended Posts

Climb: Baker Backcountry-

 

Date of Climb: 11/18/2006

 

Trip Report:

Baker.jpg

Perhaps the best first day of the season in years? Snow conditions were excellent up high off the Table ridge, heavier down low and mixed with chunky avi debris. Tried to find a cool gully and ended up above a waterfall, but there really wasn't that much b/s or rocks poking through thumbs_up.gif

 

We were expecting hoards of gapers, but the jibbing quotient was surprisingly low. Ran into Kellie and Rolf, though wave.gif

 

Pan Dome a ways off, but there was some stuff forming on the south side of Herman.

 

Gear Notes:

Nice you could get some good weather in the middle of storms in the B'ham area. Where was the waterfall, was it frozen yet?

Was up there on table mountain thinking to myself...I'm glad I'm not over there skiing those tracked out runs all day. The freshiez were in full effect. One run I had snow up to the knees smile.gif After some morning clouds the afternoon cleared with amazing views of shuksan, baker, and the north cascades in all their glory.

yea, had heard that people were sinking right down to the rocks a couple days prior so it didn't sound too good. Glad that wasn't the case.

It was more of a short runnel than a full waterfall. Not anything that you'd bother to climb, but neither was it something that we wanted to ski. cantfocus.gif
