Mount Baker Trip Report (#338)

A quintessential Ruwenzori experience: raining when we left Kitandara hut, then sleet, snow, finally fog so thick that we had difficulty spotting the cairns. The Edward glacier is shrinking fast; essentially the entire route is now rock. This is the first mountain I've climbed where the descent took as long as the ascent: between getting lost in the fog, and treacherously slippery terrain: moss, mud or mist made every step an adventure. A climb not to be missed.
