Possible 4-day Mt. Baker Climb Itinerary
|Day 1||On day one, our group will meet at the North Cascades Ranger Station in Sedro Woolley, WA at 8am. We can leave some cars nearby and carpool to the trailhead at Schreiber's Meadow at 3,200'. From there, the climb ascends about 2,300' up into the alpine zone. We will build our camp at about 5,500' on the edge of the Easton Glacier. After building camp together, we will make dinner and settle in for a well-deserved night's rest.|
|Day 2||After breakfast on day two, you will have a morning training session on basic crampon techniques, ice axe use, and roped team travel. After lunch, each person can decide if they would like to delve into more training, or if they would like to just relax.|
|Day 3||We will wake up very early on Day 3 and hopefully see the sunrise from high on the mountain. The climb to the summit from camp and back takes about 7-10 hours, depending on the group and route conditions. After returning to camp, we will relax and get another good night's sleep.|
|Day 4||If things go according to plan you can expect to be back to the trailhead on day 4 in the early afternoon.|
This itinerary may vary depending on route and weather conditions.
