Domestic Alpine Trips
  1. The Baker, Shuksan, Sahale Trilogy

    The Baker, Shuksan, Sahale Trilogy

    This is your opportunity to climb three of the most iconic peaks in the North Cascades in one week. Come and climb Mount Baker, Mount Shuksan and Sahale Peak with us. Non of these peaks are very demanding on a technical level, but they offer a level of introduction into alpine climbing that would be hard to match in a different area of the Lower 48 states.

  2. Chair Peak Climb

    Chair Peak Climb

    Chair Peak in the Alpental Valley offers several routes of varying difficulty in an alpine setting barely one hour from Seattle. Chair Peak is a great day trip for anyone looking for a quick alpine outing or a solid training peak for bigger objectives.

  3. The Torment-Forbidden Ridge with Moraine Lake (Radcliffe photo)

    Forbidden Peak Climb

    Climbing Forbidden Peak is a quintessentially North Cascadian Experience - by any route. All its classic ridge routes - the famous West Ridge, the East Ridge or the lonely North Ridge are well worth the effort and provide an unforgettable experience in a stunning setting. 

  4. In the Lake Anne area with the Lower Curtis Glacier, Upper Curtis Glacier and the Shuksan Summit pyramid in the background

    Mount Shuksan Fisher Chimneys

    Mount Shuksan's Fisher Chimeys is one of the very classic Cascadian alpine routes up the arguably most iconic peak in North Cascades National Park. You will do it all. A scenic hike, climb a complicated series of chimneys, camp in an amazing setting, cross several glaciers and climb the spectacular summit pyramid to the summit of Mount Shuksan.

  5. Mount Shuksan via the Sulphide

    Mount Shuksan via the Sulphide

    Climbing Mount Shuksan via the Sulphide Glacier consists of a 7 mile hike through old growth forest and up into the subalpine with impressive views of the surrounding peaks, followed by a relatively mellow glacial approach to the 800 foot tall summit pyramid. The final 800' to the top is snow in early season or 4th class to low fifth class rock scrambling in late season, all belayed by our experienced guides on the way up with some rappelling on the way down. A spectacular way to experience the rugged cascades on one of the most photographed mountains in North America.
  6. Zander topping out on the steep pitches.

    3-Day Mt Baker North Ridge

    The Baker North Ridge is one of top 5 classic ice routes in the lower 48 states and one of the 50 classic climbs of North America. Standing at 10,781 feet, Mount Baker is the third highest peak in the State of Washington. This route is a super classic.
  7. The steep rappel section off the summit

    Tooth South Face Climb

    The South Face of the Tooth is the most easily accessed, moderate multi-pitch alpine rock route in Western Washington.

  8. At around 8000 feet on the Coleman Glacier

    2-Day Mt Baker Summit Climb

    Mount Baker is one of the most beautiful volcanoes on the West Coast. Climbing this technically moderate 10780 foot peak can be done as an overnight trip! We will be climbing up the entertaining Coleman-Deming Glacier route.

We will climb Mount Rainier via the Kautz Route for a more enjoyable experience away from the crowds. This route is slightly more advanced than the standard Emmons Glacier and Disappointment Cleaver Route.
