Mount Baker North Ridge

Sharpen your tools for one of the Cascades most classic ice routes

Mount Baker’s North Ridge is a steep, com­mit­ting climb with tricky route find­ing on a long approach over a heav­i­ly crevassed glac­i­er. This is tru­ly one of the best mod­er­ate alpine snow and ice climbs in the Low­er 48 states, with ice up to 70 degrees. It has achieved clas­sic” stature and is a great way to gain expe­ri­ence and break into hard­er alpine climb­ing on big mountains.

North Ridge


Alpine Ice III+


Advanced Intermediate

Climbers should be comfortable climbing on exposed ridges, 45 to 60 degree snow/ice slopes and/or 5.6+ rock and have a well-rounded past history of climbing experience. Depending on the objective, climbers may need only snow/ice skills or only rock skills; and vice-versa. Some climbs may require both skill sets.
