Old Baldy Mountain


Alpine Scramble - Old Baldy Mountain

Snow Scramble at the carbon river side of Rainier. With beautiful views. AWD recommended

  • Technical 3, Strenuous 3
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,500 ft

Starting hiking at 8AM

Do not under-estimate the mileage and elevation gain. The approach goes via an un-maintained trail to an open vegetation area, before getting on snow and then to the ridge

As always in my trips, come prepared to help with navigation and move in a brisk pace (800-1000 feet an hour uphill and 1500feet an hour downhill, in scramble terrain)

If this will be your first scramble - please only sign up if you are in excellent shape to make it a fun outing for all climbers.
