About: Mount Baring, or Baring Mountain, is a peak in the central part of the Cascade Range of Washington, United States. It lies about 2 miles (3 km) northeast of the Skykomish River and US Highway 2, at the western edge of the Cascades in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. It is about 6 miles (10 km) east of Mount Index and the base is accessible via Forest Road 6024 then a 2.2-mile hike. Like Mount Index, Mount Baring is a dramatic peak, because of its steep rise above low footings (the Skykomish River is at an elevation of only 760 feet/232 m), and particularly because of its large, sheer Northeast Face, which drops 3,700 feet (1,128 m) to Barclay Lake in only one-half mile (0.8 km). The first recorded ascent of Mount Baring was on July 28, 1897 by John Charlton and Albert H. Sylvester. However given the nontechnical nature of the easiest ascent route a much earlier Native American ascent is likely. The standard route on the mountain is the Northwest Ridge Route, involving hiking (off-trail, some of it through brush) and a small amount of scrambling at the top. The northeast aspect of the peak is home to several routes of great length and technical difficulty (up to Grade V, 5.10).
