Fast and Light 2‑Day Ascents

2‑Day Ascents of Mount Baker or Mount Shuksan

The new age of climb­ing is all about going Fast and Light”. These ascents will allow par­tic­i­pants to push their car­dio by attempt­ing a clas­sic Cas­cade peak in one big push. You leave the cook­ing gear, sleep­ing bags, and take only the essen­tials as you pre­pare to tru­ly go Fast and Light”. 

Our route on Mount Bak­er, (10,781 ft / 3286 m), ascends the Eas­t­on Glac­i­er with chal­leng­ing route find­ing through ice­falls, ser­acs, and large crevass­es. On Mount Shuk­san, (9,127 ft / 2782 m), the Sul­phide Glac­i­er route offers good glac­i­er trav­el and an exhil­a­rat­ing final climb up steep mixed snow and low 5th class rock to the sum­mit pyramid. 

These climbs are all done on a cus­tom basis. Let us know if you have some oth­er climbs you’d like to do fast and light” — Con­tact Us
