Coleman Pinnacle is distinguished for the grandeur of its setting, its occasional views of nearby Mount Baker, and the miles of untracked powder it may offer to early season visitors. Because of its complexity and the possibility of sudden whiteouts, navigation skills are useful on this tour. Attempt this tour only in low avalanche hazard conditions with no warming trends in the forecast. Be sure to choose your route with an eye to the safest reasonable path. This tour is unsuitable for snowboarders. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; routefinding required; permit/fee area; snowboarders must climb up to get out.
