May 7, 2005, Mount Baker via C/D

In case you were thinking of heading up this way some time soon...here's what happened last Saturday.

A quick walk up the summer trail lead to crusty snow were you break out of the trees. Crevasses were generally a non-issue...we didn't rope up. Crampons were useful for the crusty approach and on the Roman Wall. It was a chattery ski down the Roman Wall...but turned to buttery corn below the saddle. Views from the summit were similar to that from an airplane...full clouds covered everthing below 8500 feet...only Raineer was visible and occasionally the summit of Shuksan. Get out and enjoy...

Hey, let's watch our dangling participles on this forum, please.  This should read, "Wat ith thes Raineer ov witch yow speek?"

Edit to add:  Oh yeah, and thanks for the report.  Guess the Roman Wall has a ways to go yet.
