    The prospectus outlines the Mountaineers' planned trip to Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan, providing sections describing the mountains, the camping accommodations, what the club provides, a packing list for climbers, rules and regulations and the expected cost of the two week trip. On Mount Baker, "it is the purpose of the Committee to locate a camp near timber-line on the mountain itself to enable everyone to visit a number of these vast glaciers. The location of the camp will also make it possible to make the ascent of the mountain in a single day from the main camp. The ascent of Mount Baker, by way of the southern slope is pronounced fairly easy." For the Mount Shuksan portion of the outing, the prospectus notes that "the only point from which the ascent seems possible is the southern and this can be reached from a camp located at the junction of Shuksan and Swift creeks. This region seems seldom visited by pleasure parties and the mountain has only been climbed twice.". less
