Participant Information

Mt. Rainier, WA - Ingraham Glacier Direct
Because  certain factors can't be predicted (e.g. weather, conditions), the date of this trip can only be approximate, it may move in either direction, not unlikely on a very short note (1-2 days prior to the actual trip). As long as "confirmed list" is empty, consider this trip as "standing-by".

* Original plan via Emmons Glacier route had to be dropped due to closure of White River Road.


Day 1 - meetup, obtain climbing permits
, bivy at Camp Muir @ 3,082 m (or Camp Comfort, Ingraham Flats @ 3,383m ).
Day 2 - climb, return.

Not a guided trip
This is not a guided trip. You are expected to contribute to the trip in terms of safety, fun and success, in that order. If you don't think the trip with you will be safer than without you, consider seeking better alternatives (e.g. commercial ones).

Meetup: Paradise Upper Parking Lot N46.78663 W121.73464, map: https://goo.gl/maps/JCnhRBGiq662
Meeting Time: will be emailed to you, most likely on a short note, two-three days prior to the trip.
