Mountaineering on the Pacific in 1868


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.
