Mount Blum is located along the western boundary inside of North Cascades National Park. Blum is situated 7 miles southeast of Mt. Shuksan and 4 miles east of Baker Lake. There is no easy approach to Blum owing to the dense forest surrounding it. However, the North Ridge offers an outstanding alpine climb on firm granite. This North Ridge separates two glaciers on the north aspect of the mountain.
Mount Blum was named for John Blum, a Forest Service fire patrol pilot who was killed in a crash in the early 1930's. The USGS lists the variant name as Mount Bald before the name was changed to honor Blum.
Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 3, for complete approach and route descriptions.
