Ascend glacier 500-1,000' avoiding small crevasses. Turn N to avoid small buttress, then head W straight up glacier. At about 9,500' traverse SSW .25 mi. to skirt buttress. Be careful of rockfall and crevasses. Ascend steep snow slope for last 500' to summit (10,778'). Although the approach can be arduous this is an exceptional basic glacier climb. It is very beautiful, and a little more remote than the Coleman or the Easton. There are crevasses to negotiate, yet overall route finding is straight forward and the incline is moderate. This is a harder and more demanding route than the other basic routes on Mt Baker. Get permit at the Baker Lake ranger station in Sedro Wooley.
