      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] Mt. Baker - Coleman-Deming 7/29/2007

Recommended Posts

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.
