Razorback Mtn. Point two hours South of Bluff Lake BC in a helicopter or 1 serious day of Picketesque terrain in a valley where the grizzlies all have a crack problem. 5 established routes, each of which is about 3000 feet from Schrund to summit (bigger than true North face of Robson). No seracs above your head, no rangers, no other people.

For an easy approach and a truly fun route, try "The Moustache, Pencil Thin Direct" on Mt. Baker.

Approach via the North Side of the mountain, Heliotrope Ridge Trail, and ascend the bottom of the route as if you were climbing the Coleman Deming Route. Before reaching the saddle, veer left and traverse steep slopes to the base of the gully. This gully can be seen to the left of the rocks on the left side of the Roman Wall. This is the Pencil Thin variation to the route.

At times in late season these gullies can be filled with steep water ice. At least one party has found a vertical ice variation in these gullies late season.

Happy Climbing!
