Shuksan is located approximately six miles to the east of Mount Baker in the North Cascades. Mssr. Beckey has this to say about this route: €œIt is a clever and tortuous route, not technically difficult, but involving stimulating route finding.€ (Ahh, that €œstimulating€ Beckey route finding!) This route can be a challenge for those who find steep snow and class 3-4 rock with big exposure to be unnerving. There have been some L O N G days spent on this peak by the unprepared. Know the route as best you can and start early.
Please note I will not be selecting climbers till the week of the climb.
Applicants should be comfortable scrambling 3rd-4th class, and with steep snow and ice.
Day 1: Hike in
Day 2: Summit and back
Day 3: Reserve/drive back
