Mountaineering on the Pacific in 1868
back to Alaska & Northwest page
by Edmund T. Coleman.
Based on an account of the ascent of Mount Baker and a description of that portion of
Washington Territory seen on its approach. Mountaineering in 1868 was a different
experience than nowadays. This ascent began at the seashore and included canoe trip,
portages, and a backpack just to reach the base of the peak--all through country still
wild with Indians, bears, and wolves. The final assault on the summit included ropes, ice
axes, and crampons. Reprinted from Harper's New Monthly Magazine.
Illustrated with period engravings. 24 pages.
