      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt. Rainier - Paradise to Muir 10/14/2007

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Rainier - Paradise to Muir


Date: 10/14/2007


Trip Report:

Me and my buddy Reid skinned up to Muir from Paradise on what was an awesome blue bird day with very mild comfortable temps. We tennis shoed up to the top of Pan Point, and were able to skin without interruption to Muir, about 3 hours from the car. Coming down the snow was just awesome until about 500k above Pan Point, where there just wasn't enough coverage to avoid route finding mistakes and having to clickout. I was too stubborn to pack my skis up and ended up getting down to about 500 feet below the base of Pan Point. Saw lots of people with skis, most of them carrying too much gear. Someone obviously got tired of carying their light saber and left it at one of the rest spots, but no evidence of Taun Tauns.


With the strong system that is coming in this week I'd imagine that by the weekend people could be skiing from and to the parking lot.

I've always felt like October's early storms we're the perfect time to get a lap on the Muir. Guess I better get up there. Appreciate the stoke.

Ahhh, well done!

The last time I toured the snowfield I rode with my dear old friend Phil O. Sybyn.

The mountain was my god that day, and we worshiped with much vigor!
