Climbing Mt. Baker, Washington

Guided Mt. Baker Climbs with American Alpine Institute

At 10,780 feet, Mt. Baker towers over northwest Washington and southern British Columbia. This active, though dormant, volcano is a magnificent climbing objective, with gentle glacier routes, steep alpine ice climbs, and challenging, friable rock ribs and sub-summits. The dramatic, open crater allows climbers a view of fumaroles, thermal springs, and a main vent that emits sounds akin to those of a jet engine. Listed below is a selection of AAI programs that feature a Mt. Baker summit climb, including 3-day weekend trips, 6- and 12-day instructional courses, ski or snowboard ascents, and special programs for youth.
