Glacier Mountaineering Course

Comprehensive Instruction and Ascent Of Mount Baker

Set in a spec­tac­u­lar alpine envi­ron­ment, this course pro­vides abun­dant train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and cul­mi­nates with one of the most sought after Cas­cades sum­mits — Mount Bak­er. This course is a fun­da­men­tal build­ing block of our climb­ing school and pro­vides moun­taineer­ing skills for snow, ice, glac­i­er, and rock climb­ing. If you want to pre­pare for a big­ger expe­di­tion or gain the skills to climb on your own with­out a guide, this if the course for you. The goal is to devel­op com­pe­tent, self-reliant alpine climbers. The course cul­mi­nates in the appli­ca­tion of skills learned toward the ascent of a major glaciat­ed peak such as Mount Bak­er or Mount Shuksan.
