The Miyar Adventures Mount Baker climb is meant for experienced hikers looking to start mountaineering. Our professional guides will help navigate the route, home to mountain streams, blue glaciers, and vistas spanning to the Puget Sound. This amazing setting will be our classroom as we learn and practice the do’s and don’ts of alpine travel. In preparation for the trip, guides will help each participant find the elusive balance between packing too much and leaving something critical behind. We will host a gear check at least three days prior to the climb to ensure everyone is prepared. After this trip you will have the skills and experience necessary to participate in intermediate climbs such as a climb of Mt. Shukson, more challenging routes on Mt. Baker, and climbs of other peaks in the Cascades and potentially overseas.

Skills Covered during the climb:
• Selection of personal equipment and packing for a glacier climb
• Ice axe positions and self-arrest techniques
• Use of crampons
• Walking techniques with and without crampons
• Climbing knots
• Glacier travel skills and rope management
• Navigation and route finding
• Hazard assessment
• Cold weather camping skills
• Leave No Trace

Note: Depending on weather conditions, we may change the summit day to the second day of the itinerary and sleep-in on the third day for a relaxed hike out. There could be other changes due to bad weather, unsafe route conditions, or for other reasons beyond our control.
