skyclimb Posted April 4, 2004 Share Posted April 4, 2004 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! http://www.cascadeclimbers.com/plab/showphoto.php?photo=4155&size=big&password=&sort=1&cat=503 Gear Notes: Crampons, Ice axes and second tool(didn't need) Approach Notes: Blah,Blah,skies needed, Blah Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
