[TR] Mt. Rainier- Gib. Ledges 4/3/2004


Recommended Posts

Climb: Mt. Rainier-Gib. Ledges


Date of Climb: 4/3/2004


Trip Report:

Pen(Dulton), Nate, and myself(skyclimb) decended on the muir snowfield at 4:45 friday evening. A full moon illuminated the hike to muir, and natural air conditioning was at its finest. We reached Muir at 10: something to be pleasently suprised by the elequent and admirable company of Hannah(girlclimber).

We began climbing at 4:45a.m., reached the ledges, did the exit chute, and topped out above gibralter rock. Due to a white-out we didn't summit, but had a great time decending the Ingrahm Direct. We then entered back into the sunshine!

Girlclimber will post a more detailed report, but this route is in condition, and seriously rocks!

It may take her a few days though, because she is going to give the nisqually icefall a try today!








Gear Notes:

Crampons, Ice axes and second tool(didn't need)


Approach Notes:

Blah,Blah,skies needed, Blah
