Ascent Trip Report

We left at 1500 hours and took the trail up to the 6000 foot mark We set camp here and at 0339 we set up the Coleman Glacier to the Roman Wall. We summitted Baker at aproximaetly 1130. The climb went with out incident. Route finding was not an issue as the weather was clear. A snow path through the creavss are on Coleman Glacier helped us get through without any difficulty. The view was not that great from the top due to the numerous logging cuts in the mountains below. It was nice to get a 10 thousand footer.
