Trip: Mt. Baker - Coleman-Deming


Date: 7/29/2007


Trip Report:

Hit the ever popular Heliotrope trail at 5:oo pm Saturday and met up with climbing partner Norman at camp, top of the hogsback at 5800 ft. Andrew and his wife Amber,{her first climb} and Jake, another noob. Lot of good tent sites and water at base of glacier. Fog and clouds did not look good but we hoped for the best. Finally got a peak of Baker before crawling in the bag for a couple hours sleep. Left camp at 3:00 am in thick clouds and at 7000 winds got very high. Kept going and started to clear. By Pumice ridge, above the clouds. Good firm snow all the way to summit. Crampons helped but not required. Crowded as usual for a summer weekend trip on Komu-Kulshan but fun was had by all. Didn't stay long on summit, it was very cold. Only view was Rainier.Glacier and Shuksan. Route is in excellant shape, no problems along the way.


Gear Notes:

usual stuff.


Approach Notes:

creeks are high.
