The Coleman Deming is a wild and adventurous experience on the north side of Mount Baker. The route traverses under the beautiful Black Buttes and ascends to the Coleman Deming saddle at 9000 feet. The final push up the Roman Wall is an exciting climb on 40-degree snow. Large crevasses, active icefalls, and grandiose scenery make for an inspiring objective.

The North Ridge of Mount Baker is a stunning and aesthetic arête between the Coleman Headwall and the Roosevelt Glacier. The route is elegant and exposed, characterized by steep snow and a technical ice cliff at 9500 feet. Above, large seracs guard the summit plateau. Approaching the North Ridge is half the adventure as well, and involves complex route finding around massive crevasses on the Coleman Glacier.
