Since Mt. Baker is relatively new to the IMG lineup let’s take a look at the spec sheet:
Height:*10, 781 (4th highest in WA).
Weight: This is an excellent question. First you take ∏ • r² (Pi times radius squared) to get the area of a circle. Next you take into account the density of water vs. magma…add in the massive snowfall (see record below)…carry the 1 and you come up with… climbing Baker is easier than math.
Record: Undefeated. It is a volcano!
Official Record: *1140 inches of snowfall (1998-99).
Glaciers: *13. Covering 16 square miles.
First Climbed: *1868 (Edmund Thomas Coleman)

Forget the math and join us on the Easton Glacier on Mt. Baker in the North Cascades. Whether you’re a first time climber or a seasoned veteran of the Pacific Northwest we’re certain you won’t be disappointed.
