Mt Baker Summit via the standard Coleman Deming route. This will be a two day trip with the first night at Coleman camp. Due to the nature of the area, this trip will be postponed if avalanche and/or weather conditions do not look reasonable. Participants will be pre-screened based on their prior trips with the club and myself. Participants are expected to have glacier travel training, and at least the equivalent training of AST-1. This will be a long, strenuous climb up. You are expected to be in very good shape for this trip to keep up with the group. The trip will be approximately 20km aound trip and 2150m of elevation gain. Edit: I am willing to expand the group size if another leader is willing to help out. Message me if you're interested.

Required Items to Bring:
Skis or splitboard, skins, beacon, probe, shovel, ski crampons, glacier travel gear, headlamp, food, compass first aid kit(s)
