Mt Baker

Mount Baker is a dream come true for many climbers, offering the perfect place to hone the craft of glacier travel, crevasse rescue, alpine ice climbing, and ski mountaineering. Standing tall in the North Cascades, reaching an impressive elevation of 10,781 feet (3,286 meters), it is the highest peak in the Northern Cascade Range and leaves a lasting impression with its snow-capped summit and rugged slopes.

Mt Baker provides the opportunity to immerse oneself in the stunning beauty of the North Cascades with all of the routes approaching through old growth forests, across alpine meadows and finally up into the alpine where high camps can be perched adjacent to glaciers.

Whether this is your first mountaineering objective or you're seeking a classic ski mountaineering adventure, we invite you to join Edgeworks guides on a climb of Mt. Baker.

Mt. Baker has had many names over the centuries. Before the arrival of Europeans, the speakers of the four Salishan languages nearest the mountain each had a different name for it including Koma Kulshan or Kulshan (Lummi: qwú’me, “white sentinel”, and kwelshé:n, “puncture wound”, i.e. “crater”)..
