These 18 peaks are all near the dominant landmark of Mount Baker. It is called the "Baker's Dozen" because to earn the Mountaineers Peak Pin for this list you must climb any 13 peaks on the list. Outside of Mount Baker itself and the famously scenic Mount Shuksan, these summits are all relatively obscure.
However, climbing 13 (or 18) peaks on this list is a serious mountaineering objective. Virtually no summits here are walk-ups or even scrambles, and most involve crossing glaciers or steep snowfields. There are also a number of epic bushwhacking approaches to some of the more remote peaks, and one of them (Canadian Border Peak) is across the border in Canada.
