Mount Baker 3 Day Climb Testimonials

The guides were able to teach in a simple and effective manner that stuck with me. I learned more in those few days from the guides than from any other experience I’ve had. They were incredible people and it would be a joy to climb with them again.

Fantastic wilderness experience! Mt. Baker feels like it’s a million miles from anywhere.

This was one of the coolest and most rewarding things I have every done. The guides were great, the climb itself was challenging, but enjoyable. As a first time climber, I felt safe and had fun the whole entire trip.

The experience was fantastic. I learned so much about climbing on a glaciated mountain and what’s its like to be part of an expedition. I also learned a lot about myself. The sense of accomplishment is huge and will stick with me for a long time.

Mt. Baker was a true wilderness experience. Remote and primitive. I will always remember having dinner the last night with a mountain goat grazing on my left and a rock slide on my right.

Very well organized from the beginning when I first contacted the office through the climb itself.  The office staff helped me choose the best possible climb for my interest and ability and the written materials I received were completed and helped my choose my gear correctly, which can be confusing for a beginning climber.  Your reputation is well-deserved, I would definitely choose a trip with you again.

Excellent. Climbing Mt. Baker was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The guides were easy to talk to and fun to be around. There was plenty of food, enough time for rest and lots of time for hands on learning and asking questions.

I was very pleased – there was excellent documentation and guidance prior to the climb.  The fitness goals were very helpful and definitely helped us ready for the demands of the climb.  The trip was excellent. As good if not even better than any other climbing related program I’ve participated in.

From start to finish, I knew we were with the right outfit.  It was an unforgettable experience, a true lifetime experience.  Across the board my guides all showed great leadership.  I’m a teacher myself and these guys know how to teach.  I not only learned and felt confident, but I had a great deal of fun in the process.  People learn better when they are relaxed and enjoying themselves and they were awesome at this.  They were funny smart, charming, gentle and accommodating.  It must have been a huge challenge to take an all-women group, spanning 4 decades of cancer survivors.  We were an incredible mixed bag of skills, ability and attitude and these guys made us feel special.  Gentlemen to the bone!!!!  Cancer was forced on me, I had no choice but to face that challenge, but climbing Baker I CHOSE, for myself and pushed through a lot of fear and limitations as I hoped I would.  I hurt this morning but I am alive and well and a stronger, better woman for this experience.  I also made great friends!!!

It was incredible! Start to finish, I found this adventure to be satisfying, rewarding and enjoyable. Yes, absolutely. I felt that the initial instruction/overview at the trailhead was direct and instilled confidence that I was in good hands and that we had a plan for us to be successful and to enjoy ourselves throughout the trek. They were all very experienced and knowledgeable about mountaineering and I felt like I could ask them any questions about Baker or other mountains in the area. The office staff is exceptional and super friendly. I feel super comfortable with this team and the communication they provided leading up to our trip. I think overall I’m pleased with the experience. I think that you guys run a lot of trips so I’m sure it’s time intensive to connect with each climber/client. I think you did a great job sending emails and checking in and the gear check was a nice opportunity to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall really happy with this experience.
